Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls Card of Encouragement

This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I love to browse on Pinterest!  I may actually have a slight problem.  After all, where else can you go from yummy recipes, to new nail colors, to exercise trends, to fabulous card ideas all in the matter of minutes (ur umm hours)?  I was recently Pinspired by the card found here.  I wanted a card for a friend who needed some encouragement and I thought this would be perfect.  Add my favorite color and the gorgeous Grey Gray crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM's LG bundle and you have this pretty little card.

Interested to find out what I did with my extra pieces?  Be sure to head over to DJ's Sundries by clinking here to find out.  Trust me - you will be very glad you did. **Hint - There are Stickles involved**  There is even a video that walks you through the process.  It contains a couple of tips for paper saving and pattern matching.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
