For the birds

I needed to make a card for my Uncle Jay.  He happens to own an island in MN that has a beautiful cabin on it.  We were lucky to spend some time there last summer and were able to see a family of loons off the shore.  They have a very distinct call that they make to each other and it is very loud on the lake.  I added crystal lacquer to the water to give the shiny effect of the lake on a sunny day.
