In love...

...with my Birds & Blooms dies that came with the Big Shot bundle I ordered recently! It all started with the Believe Journal I created using Jen's Saturday SFYTT this past weekend. The more I used that sweet bird and the accompanying blooms, the more I liked 'em. Silly me, thinking I didn't really care for that whole set of dies, I'd just wanted the Pillow Box and Top Note Bigz dies that also came in the Big Shot bundle, ha!

If you'd like to see the evolution of my love story, scroll down to Saturday's post and then back up--there's a plethera of cards (ok, just 3 of them, but I love that word!) using the Birds & Blooms dies, as well as Mr. Top Note!

Today's card uses a bit of the retired Spring Silhouettes DSP along with retired Soft Sky cardstock. I guess I was on a roll with retired products as the stamped sentiment and frame are from the retired set, Noteworthy. In hindsight, I should've aptly named this post: Something Old, Something New?! Back to the card...just a couple more details to share: the edges of my love bird are lightly sponged with (retired!) River Rock ink with Linen Thread tied around the 5/8" grosgrain and sentiment layer; pearls are from the My Pretties kit; and the flower is from that bag of unmarked flowers, so I have no source for them, but I can tell you they're "prima-like" in nature!

Here's something for you to try--pair up something old with something new today!
