Silhouette Thanks

It seems like forever since I've been able to spend any time in my craft room.  I've been away every day for the past couple of weeks and when I get home I'm ready to curl up and do absolutely nothing.  As you know that's not a good way to get anything done.  But, today found me up way too early but well rested and ready to get some projects made.

For this card, I did a little bit of water coloring with some Distress Oxide Inks.  I used Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and Wilted Violet for the background.  On top of the watercolor panel, I used the birds in flight stamp from the High Tide stamp set from Stampin' Up!  The trees were cut out in Basic Black cardstock using the dies from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.  I set the panel off center so I could add the die cut from the Thanks die by Taylored Expressions.  My card base is Crumb Cake

Today, I've entered my card in the following challenges.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the images below.
