Bird!! for FS58

Updated to add The Bird Part II, since they won't be heading for the circular file, but the mailbox due to special request, I thought I would add a sentiment. This is not the same card, the other one is already off in the mail!


This card has what I think is a funny story:

It's hard to believe that I was casing this gorgeous card by Becky: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=39860

Try as I might, I just couldn't do anything right and was getting really frustrated. Finally I just posted it so I could stop thinking about. When I uploaded it I though it looks kinda good from far away, so asked people to back up and look again, LOL!!

I was really surprised by the comments that I received, but I think they were just trying to make me feel better! You can check them out here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/851050?cat=500&ppuser=122612

Well the funny thing is I thought it was so ugly and now I have to make another one of them to send to people that wanted to rescue it from the trash bin!!

So tell me honestly, what do you think? I'm a big girl, I can take it!! LOL!!

Thanks for looking!!

Seriously I think it is beautiful. I love the mix patterns and backgrounds. I'm looking at it and trying to figure out what it is that you feel you didn't do right. I think it's vintage and feminine and an absolutely lovely card.
