This was a card that just came together after pulling this paper out, cottage Wall by SU which will be retiring this month. Also retiring is the card base which is orchid opulence. I had thought about using a flower at the top, but when I pulled out the stuff for the flower I realized I already had this bird punched out. So, I thought, "Why not use the bird?" And when it was complete, I was glad I did. There is nothing like this two-step bird punch. It just makes a card look so elegant. Actually I believe I will use this in the Clean and Simple challenge on Christian Paper Crafts which was their fun on Friday Challenge. It was really simple and easy and the only stamp I used is also retiring this month and I will truly miss this stamp set, Close as a Memory. I love the verses and the flower that go with it.
So with two layers and a bird punch it is complete! Thanks for looking.
