That Sweet Pea bird is back again...

I was heavily inspired for this card by one made by Canadian SU demonstrator Andrea Walford, although I changed the stamp set and the colours. I do love this bird stamp, and these colours and of course these gorgeous felt flowers. And this Designer Series Paper stack is excellent value – sheets work out at about 40.6p, which is a mega-bargain for top quality double-sided 12x12.

To make the fancy corners, take your ½” circle punch and turn it upside-down. You’ll see a cross in the middle of the metal. Push the corner of your cardstock into the centre of this cross and punch – you’ll end up with these lovely indented corners.
