H2H Challenge January Week 4

This week's H2H challenge (my first participating, yay!) is to make a card featuring an animal or bird. Since I'm still putting together Love/Valentine cards, I pulled out an oldie but goodie set from CTMH, Free Spirit. This is one of the first sets that I bought from CTMH, and though I've long since cleared out many of my other sets that I bought this long ago, there is something about this one that I still like! I don't have a TON of stamp sets that have birds in them, so I was glad to have this one to turn to.
