The Magic Begins With Stampin’ Up! Best Birds Card

This is a card I made using Stampin' Up!'s Best Birds stamp set.  We have been watching the birds at our feeder and have seen the usually wrens, chickadees, finches, and blue jays.  I was hoping that with warmer weather we would start to see some robins – ain't going to happen for a while!
Mother Nature has decided to give us all the snow we didn't get so far this winter in February.  We received 6 snowstorms in 10 days! Over 60" of snow in some areas. So what else could I do? Produce a little magic – card, that is.

The magic begins:
