Flight of Birds - Vintage Birthday Card

I was intrigued  by the Poetry Inspiration challenge at CCEE. I especially loved this part of the poem they chose:

A poem should be wordless
As the flight of birds.

I chose a vintage image of swallows in flight to illustrate these lines in the poem.Swallows are so graceful to watch - truly poetic! You can find quite a few vintage images of birds, including swallows at The Graphics Fairy.  This image shows one of the swallows carrying a sprig of blue forget-me-nots. The sentiments I chose for the front and inside are from the "Happy Birthday" set by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I made this in honor of my mom's birthday (that would have been this week) in shades of blue, her favorite color.

Thank you for visiting. May God bless you and help you to see and enjoy even more of His marvelous creation!
