Life is Better With Friends

Couldn't wait to play with JustRite's new Spread Your Wings set. Birdhouses and birdcages are a weakness of mine, and these are especially pretty! Spread Your Wings and many other new JustRite sets have recently been added to the Stamper's Dream store, so be sure to hop over and see all them under New Arrivals. I've also been itching to play with Echo Park's For the Record paper collection. The patterns I used are the larger 12x12 prints, but Echo Park has since released this collection in the increasingly popular, card-friendly 6x6 size. Yay!! Thank you, Echo Park!

I think today's card is pretty straightforward, so I'll go easy on chit-chat. Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!!

Lovely card, Amy. Those are some of the pretties bird cages I've seen.

Be still my heart! Those bird cages... that flower... those buttons! You are a master of those surprising little details that transform the ordinary into something absolutely extraordinary!

I know I've said this before, but your ability to coordinate papers and colors is out of this world. The red accents draw my eye right away, but then I really soak up all the brilliance that is the rest of your card. Amazing.

I don't know how you do it, but whatever papers you put together, they look like they were made for one another!

And also I want to say that I completely agree with Oliwiaen comment! You do it great always! :)
