CAS Mix Up February Challenge - best wishes

A good friend of mine is leaving her company so I made this card for her.

I knew I wanted to use a die-cut felt bird, but I was not sure where to place the sentiment, "best wishes". After thinking about it for a while, I decided to give the bird an envelope to carry and stamp the sentiment on the envelope. I think it worked well.

I'm entering this card into the CAS Mix Up February Challenge.
