A friend of mine is hosting a fundraiser and I offered to donate a set of hand-made cards for the silent auction. I adore the Best Birds bundle and had my stamp club make the same card last week. I actually CASE’d (Copy And Share Everything) myself from back in December (you can see that post here). Instead of using Shimmer White Cardstock for the birds like I did back in December, I used Watercolor paper. I also decided to change up the color scheme and go with softer colors. One of my clubbies mentioned adding Wink of Stella to the wings, so that’s what I did with this set…gives it that shimmery extra accent that works beautifully with the bird. Thanks, Linda!
