A CAS Thank You

I had not made a card in about 4 days, just uploaded some made earlier. I was having withdrawals and had to get in the craft room. I'm making this card to enter into Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #85.
The challenge is to make a 'thank you' card. It is nice to make something other than Christmas, at least, this once.

I went rather CAS with my card. The image is from the Pussy Willow stamp set found at Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company.  I'm using a retired sentiment as I don't have one of the MFP's thank you stamps. My recipe is found below.

Recipe:
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company-Pussy Willow
Paper: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip, PTI vintage cream and white, DP is from a scrapbook store and unknown name
Ink: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page -corner is Bird and Branch and edge is Woodland

Beautiful! Have you been shopping for punches again? ... bet you bought this 'cause of the wee birdie (you're as bad as me with 'Ruby' goodies heehee!!)

What a nice pussy willow set! And of course, I'm thinking that you are loving this bird. :) I like the simple black and white scheme.

Finally have my Christmas tree up!! (but then, you know that from visiting my blog) The kids are contented now. :)

This is so cute. I love that punch around the page set too. I goes perfectly with any type of bird image. Just lovely.
