This kind of showcases an alternative way to use the background paper you create. Instead of as background the paper becomes the focal point, using the Spellbinders nestability to cut out a sweet little bird.
This card and the one below use sentiments from a Clear Dollar Stamp set called 'Whatever.' I think it is going to be so versatile!
A friend loaned me her Manhattan Flower die from Stampin Up and I had to try it out. I think it makes a nice backdrop for the bird. I used a piece of carefully hoarded vellum from a retired SU Candy set to tie the colors together. I think it was called Candy.
