Anyway - I made the card according to the sketch and I just wasn't feelin the love. It was so plain! I rounded the corners thinking that might help but no I still hated didn't like it. Then I decided to add a watercolored image from the stamp set Peace Within. I felt much better about it after that! LOL. And you know I think I really do have a thing for birds cause I didn't realize till now that I used another "bird stamp"! But my mom loves birds - good thing!
