The second Brown layer needs to be 4 5/8th not 3/8th. Cut at 3/8th and thoughht I had done something wrong. Just recut that piece for the smaller one. Love the card and all the videos!

Hi Gina, I'll tell what I do with the bird. I always use a little light blue on the neck area, it looks like more like a bird.
