Hello, Good Friend

Isn't this a great background paper - simple and with great lines!
It's brand new and is called Birds of a Feather. There are some wondeful papers included in this collection, as well as coordinating stamp sets.

The birds were stamped in Island Indigo on top of a Crumb Cake nest found in the
Take Care set. Then, rather than hand cut around the nest, (I didn't really need a nest, just a bit of background interest), I used the 1" Circle Punch.

On this card I paper pierced two opposite corners and distressed the paper just around the area that was embellished with piercing.

The buttons are new also - Natural Designers Button and add a warm touch,
especially when secured with Linen Thread.

The center embellishment is one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits, which I've added a little extra interest to by using a Finishing Touches Edgelits.

Die cut your Framelit first then take off just a tad, upper and lower, with the little
sawtooth border Edgelit. Very crisp and a nice change!

Beautiful card, I love how you used the DSP for the background! Guess I'll be adding this paper to my next order.
