Love at First Sight ~ 2-step Bird Punch

I fell in love with this product, the Bird Builder punch the moment I saw it in the Stampin Up 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog! I cased this design from page 19, giving it my own spin. I love the color combination and HAD to recreate it. It was easy enough, except it took me 3 tries to get the branches (2 sets of branches) in the right position behind the bird. I changed the designer paper and used my favorite greeting set, Sincere Salutations. I gave this card to a special Uncle for his birthday (he called to say he loved it). Thank you SU designers!  This cased card design will be recreated in the Farmington Valley Stampin' Up! Crafters Club 1st meeting!
