A Happy Accident

We made several of these shaker cards in the Christmas card class the other day, but I messed up on this one by stamping the images too close to the bottom to allow the greeting (Hope your Christmas is snow much fun) to fit. Plus, the tree is too far to the left. What can I say, I was having an "off" day. It happens a lot more than I admit infrequently. :-D

Anyhoo, there was a small blank space to the right of the tree, and it seemed like having a word bubble coming from the bird would be just the ticket. The bubble is the wing from the Bird Builder Punch.

And the best part? I like this card better than the original!
