DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #222: Beautiful You Watercolor Pencil Ruffles!
Swap Share Saturday: Spring Card Inspiration and SAB Metallic Ribbon!

Beautiful Best Birds Bundle Card

Today I'm sharing...a beautiful Best Birds Bundle card.  This set could go unnoticed in the 2016-17 Annual Catalog.  But it deserves a second-look.  

A little birdie told me that you were looking for a stamp set for all occasions. With this set, you can tweet them a good thought or sing their praises.  Let your creativity take flight!

This nice and calm card could be used to reach out to someone your thinking of or as a thank you.  I'm always in need of both of those types of cards.
