Best Birds

This is the second card I prepped for the shoebox swap held on Monday at my demo Sarah's house while she is enjoying her Stampin' Up trip to Thailand.  A few of us commented at a class back in May that we were going to miss getting together at her studio as she is gone for two weeks.  I joked that we should meet anyway while she was gone and she said "go ahead".  She even advertised for us in her newsletter--come and join in the "while the cats away, the mice will play shoebox swap"!  So--we did and had a great time!!!  There were five us and we each made two different cards so we came home with 8 new cards. 

For this card, I used the stamp set Best Birds and the matching dies.  My background is the Pinewood Plank Embossing Folder.

Here is the inside of my card.
