Right off the bat, are you lovin’ the very happy color palette? It sure did make me smile.  I pulled the colors from the soon to be released Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.

I’ve used the Sweet Songbirds bundle on the inside. That one includes a punch you’ll want to add to your very 1st order.

This card is going to my daughter. I’ll be sending smiles to her for completing another school year.  If you know a teacher or have one in your life, be sure to let them know how much you appreciate them.

Doesn’t that little bird look like he is about to take flight? In the bundle you’ll find lots of sentiments and 2 bird images.  I decided to just use the punch for the bird, so that you can see how easy he comes together.
