Eyes

My theme tag is inspired by the old gospel hymn, "His Eye Is On the Sparrow" -- meaning if the birds are taken care of, so are we. My little bird is also a princess, even though she is cut from a plain paper sack. The tag, crown, legs, beak, and punched flowers are from scrapbook papers. I embossed her using my birdies embossing folder with my Sizzix Texture Boutique, using an ink pad to make the embossing pop a little. And I found the words, "faith, love and hope" in my Tim Holtz pad of sticker words (love that thing).

 I had been working on some embroidery, so with all my flosses already out, I used some green floss and flower buttons to add a little more. This was such a fun tag to make, and so quick! Happy Tuesday everyone. Blessings!
