Hello Bird!

Tonight is our swap, here's my card.  I LOVE it!!!!  Our swap is using retired stuff.  I shared on Monday that this would be a challenge for me.  I have such trouble using anything retired!  So I started thinking, what do I hold on to most after it retires.  (I generally save very little).  Then I knew.  PUNCHES!  I never (very rarely) get rid of my punches.  They're the one thing that I save, praying that they don't break since now they're retired.  I used 2 retired punches, the rest are current.  The two retired ones that I used are the Boho Blossom (feet and feathers on top of his head) and the 5 Petal Flower Punch (beak).  LOVE!!! 
Other punches used are XL Oval and 1 1/4 Circle (body), 3/4 inch and the smallest circle from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack (eyes), and finally the Bird Builder Punch (wings and branch).  The legs are just scraps of Pumpkin Pie.  That's it's!  It's a simple and sweet bird that I CASEd from this card.  I'll have the rest of the swaps to share next week!
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!
