Today’s card is made with another brand new suite of products. I used the Free As A Bird stamp set along with the Bird Ballad Designer Series paper and Bird Ballad Trinkets to create this best friends card. I colored the stamped image using Stampin’ Write Markers. 

This suite is one of the prettiest in the new catalog. It includes a stamp set, dies, paper, ribbon, trinkets, and a pretty tin full of gorgeous laser cut cards with envelopes.
