Stampin' Up! Friend to Friend

For my ladies at Hope Lutheran, here's the card we will be working on tomorrow. It uses a layout found here.

The paper is, unfortunately, not from Stampin' Up! But it is very pretty and I had a bunch of it, so we're going to use it :)

The partial circles in the background were cut using my coluzzle, then trimmed down to fit. (As were the matting pieces behind it.) The bird was stamped and then punched out with a 3/4" circle, backed by a 1" circle in night of navy. The bird and the phrase are from retired sets. (I figured if we were using non-su! papers, we could use retired stamps, too. *sigh* not setting a good example... but it's all about the layout!)

The bird can use some coloring in, and perhaps we'll add some color around the phrase, too. But for those of you who do not visit scs on a regular basis - perhaps this unfinished card/layout will inspire you to create a card or two of your own!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
Phrase is from Friend to Friend.
