Default CAS657 Mailbox bird

Thank you Jen for the timely challenge- I have been wanting to use my stamped image and this fit the bill! For my card creation I watercolored my main panel with my bird on top of a mailbox. Repurposed the embossed and striped background, and added a hand lettered sentiment. I can't identify the embossing folder, I know it's from Sizzix, so if anyone knows- tell me and I will edit my card posting

Here's Mailbox bird
