Sometimes I get an idea into my head way before I sit down to make a card and other times I sit down, look through my stamps, look through my paper, and search for inspiration. For this card, the idea (including the colors and paper) came to me first. The only thing I had to search for in this case, was the stamps. I already knew the design and paper I was going to use (minus the ribbon and flower and button, which I added in the process). I love this little bird from Unity and the sentiment as well. I have been nostalgic lately and was inpsired to make a card for a dear friend. The only problem is that I have so many dear friends, now I just have to decide which one will be the recipient. Having too many friends is never a problem I am so blessed!!!!
