I used the Sizzix die cut border strip called "Birds and Branches". It's a really pretty die cut. I added a detail to the flying bird, because it looked funny without that second wing behind it. I used black enamel accents for the little itty bitty eye dot.
I pieced the tree together since it is really one long strip to make it look more like a tree branch.
The tag on top is from Spellbinders fancy tag collection. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Warm Words set. I used SU window punch and added gems for a little bling-bling.
I carried the theme of birds and tree branches inside the card. It is blank because I never know when I might need a card for some occasion. This leaves me options...love options.
I could use it as a Thinking of You card, a Birthday card, a Lovey Dovey card for husband, or even a Thank-you card. I think I will work on a birthday card next. I don't have many of those...and I have 5 sisters and one brother. Whew... thank goodness I'm retired.
