To Cheer Up a Friend

One of my friends is due to have a cataract operation today so I made this card to let her know that we are thinking about her - I thought the little birds and flowers would make her smile.  The paper was one which I came across in one of my boxes and came as a freebie quite a while ago so I designed the card to go with the colours and luckily the punched bird is very similar to the one printed on the paper.

Background - free paper from magazine
Layers - Spellbinder dies
Bird and leaves - Stampin' Up punch
Flowers - Stampin' Up stamp with matching punch
Tiny flowers - X-cut punch
Sentiment - computer generated on SU punched tags
Ribbon - SU banner punch


  1. Lovely card Val, like your birdie background papers and your pretty dies...I am sure your friend will love it


  2. A beautiful card to cheer someone up Val, the bird matches the paper perfectly.
