Touch of Peaceful Wishes

I'm so happy that my favorite little birdie survived the retiring list! I can breathe a sigh of relief because for the time being, Touch of Nature is no longer in jeopardy. That's the good news! The bad news is, another one of my favorite stamps used here, Linen background wasn't so lucky...it will be retired at the end of the month. I was also correct in my prediction on the demise of my good ol' buddy Frosty and Flaky Friends. If you haven't seen the list you can view it here.

For this card I combined Touch of Nature with Peaceful Wishes. I think it makes a nice Christmas card, or by changing the colors or even just the greeting, it would make a nice masculine card for a birthday or other occasion as well. I love to use the Linen background over the top of a water colored image like I did here to add some texture. It is also used tone on tone on the base of the card for some subtle detail. If you don't have this background stamp yet I highly recommend it!

This little birdie looks so nice on the tree branch! I'm so sad that the linen background is retiring! It's my favorite!

This is pretty! I only kept Touch of Nature for a little bit because I couldn't make it work for me. I see wonderful samples like this one and wish I had kept it! Great way of combining these 2 sets.

love that little bird stamp and the swirly greeting is just perfect. I am waiting for my Stampin' Up! catalogue to arrive so I can see what we have over here - it's not the same on line!
