Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #144 Meets Cardz4Guys #104

This card is for a good friend of mine who is undergoing 30 days of radiation treatments.  My goal is to send him a card a week and this is card #2.

Close to My Heart products used:
     Kraft CS
     Zoe paper
     Gold Metallic Marker--to make dots inside the circles, color the wood bird
         and color some gold leaves in tree)
     Keep Your Chin Up stamps
     Chocolate Ink
     Versamark Ink
     Clear Embossing powder
     3D Foam Tape
     Buttercup spiral clip (retired)
     Wood Trinkets (retired)

Here is the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #144 that inspired me to make this card:

I was also influenced to make this card by the Spots and or Stripes challenge over at Cardz 4 Guys.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativitye!
