It's all about the birds!

A couple of months ago I visited the Checkered Cottage (a quaint store in Kirkwood, Missouri) and saw this darling card with birds and buttons.  I just HAD to make one like it!  I love how the button accents add just the right touch to the card.  I need some more practice lining up border punches but that is what it is all about, isn't it!  Well, I'm off to get ready for yet another surgical proceedure on my back this morning but wanted to post a quick one first!  Toodles!  Love, Elle

I love birds! And I really love the cutout work at the bottom of this. And the buttons, and the text on the birds, the lace. All of it! Excellent!
