  3. Hi Gail - welcome back! Thanks so much for taking the time to share your project & creativity with us. I had to enlarge this one so I could see what you did with your background behind the birds. That scalloped punch folded in half is very creative...was it a photo?? I like how you got sky and ground in that way! Nicely done toots!
