Empty Nest with Swirly Scribbles and Chase Dreams

This summer, a significant number of friends
had children who graduated from high school. 
It's hard to imagine, given that we are "so young".
But really, I knew these people before they ever had

That got me thinking about the "empty nest" syndrome
that many friends are going through, and led to this card.
The "nest" is made out of the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits
on page 220.  I created the feathers and sentiment with
Chase Your Dreams Framelits on page 216.  I doubled
up the "dream" sentiment to make it stand out.
The only ink used on this card was sponging
around the edges.   The colors include Soft Sea Foam,
Tranquil Tide, So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.

What a great idea for the thinlits! The "nest" is perfect with the feather and sentiment. Sweet card, Jackie!
