Stamp Club Card

That's right at the last minute (day before my stamp club) I decided to change the card that we will be making for our club nights.  I do this from time to time, but I'm much happier with the new card and from the comments from the ladies at club they liked it too!

The front has a hole cut through so you can see part of the picture inside the card.  Of couse, I couldn't throw away the circle that was left over after cutting out, so I made a tag too.

Here is the inside of the card showing the other birdy and the rest of the sentiment.  So cute!

Here are the instructions to make this adorable card:
