DCM-The Same But Different

I love doing challenges but my efforts have been a bit scarce recently. However! I popped over too DCM and loved their dare, here's what Kathy said;


And so to our next dare and it's me (Kathy) setting you a little challenge this time. One of the things I love about our dares is that although we all start with the same brief, the cards we produce are all so different.
So for my dare I'd like to see what happens when our starting point is the same quotation:
Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke

I've followed the theme of a card I made a while back for this one which is something I don't do much because I don't like doing the same thing twice. I made it a bit different this time but kept Birdie Dottie the same because I love her in blue.

The papers are 'Dream Street and the flowers are Primas, the image is a Dottie Download.
Thanks for looking xxx
