Bluebird Blessings Card

I have been re-organizing all my little S&Fs into a pocket hanger, and I found this little piece of glossy cardstock with Polished Stone technique, so I thought I would see how glossy cardstock goes through my BigShot with a sizzlit. (wonderfully) You like?
.
I used the Marvy Mega and Giga Scalloped Oval Punches, CB Fine Vine folder, the SU Scallop Border Punch and the Graceful Words retired set from SU. One more note: I had to put scotch tape under the folded wing as a reinforcement because the glossy cardstock tended to crack and I didn't want to to break off, and the tape actually will help the wing pop up when it comes out of the envelope again.
.
Not having looked at other bird die-cut cards until after this one was finished, I now see that most people turn the wings to flap to the back, and not up and down...so this is a rare bird!
.
C-ya later!
