For this challenge, I decided to use my new Twist & Pop Card -die from tattered lace and my Cut N Boss:
This is a friendship/thanks card:


 I left it with a shaped card. I sued watercolor pencils and the CTMH blender to color that single bird. CTMH cardstock and printed paper.
For the inside:

I used several alpha dies from Tattered lace and boBonny, and even paperwishes die of the month (you)
 The thanks is also from paper wishes.

I'm thinking in outlining the letters with markers to make them pop better. This is my first twist and pop card, hopefully you like it.

Many Blessings

I used a Sizzix gatefold die and papers from CTMH stash:



I used the Bugaboo digital image: Bird Trio Summer from Bugaboo Stamps and some diecut sentiments:


For the band holding the card shut, I used a page strip from the same CTMH paperpack, and more diecuts from the same folder.

I cut the printed digital image using a Theresa Collins die that came with my Cut'n'Boss machine, Craftwell. I'm planning to use the negative letter for another project, I have in mind.

Some close-ups:

 so my inside sentiment says: Love my wonderful sunshine...

Finally, I used some of CTMH twine to add some texture to the card.

I hope you enjoy this card and decide to join us at this fun challenge.
Many Blessings
