March Stamp Club - Theme Card

Well Hello Everyone!!

Hope you are having a  nice week so far!!

We have finally reached March, the month that brings on spring
and I am happy that the official beginning of spring will start in about 1 1/2 weeks.

Tonite we had our March stamp club meeting and the theme card was  Things that Fly. 
Now, that includes a lot of things. However I took the easy way out - I used a bird stamp.
This is one of my all time fav's and I have had this one for over 10 years. 
And yes this cute bird and the sentiment are still available 
I know, I am really dating myself...LOL

Here's the card I made for stamp club 
(It has underlying tones of Christmas - but I will have at least 1 christmas card done)

That diamond shape with the image on it, flips over the right...... 

And now the card can open as usual

I carried that diamond shape over to the inside as well

I really like this card design. Its fun to do and really makes a statement.
BTW - this is an A-2 card size

This would be a great design for an A7 card as well

Stamps:  Great Impressions - Image - Winter Chickadee, Sentiment  - Season Brings
Paper/Card Stock
DP (3), Dark Green CS, White CS
Ink: Memento - Northern Pine , Rich Cocoa
Dies Used:  Spellbinders - Square
Ribbon, Memento markers - Northern Pine & Rich Cocoa,  Craft-Dee BowZ  tool

Pretty card, Barbara! I especially like the bird image. I also appreciate your showing the clever fold so we could see the touch of green. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble #51.
