so here is my card 
Paper used from a sheet of Blue Heron Studios - Calling Card - Serendipity
the solid paper  Brazzill
I love the sentiment I used on the card
now the next challenge I found sort of hard an all white card ...
yes a white card I have to say on my card I did add a bit of color 
it is hard to tell but the paper behind the birds and branches is sparkle 
and I made the birds a light blue
and of course the sentiment in black letters.
