Elegant Bird Die Peace Banner

At the Stampin' Up! Convention in May this year I saw Beth Stewart demonstrating the elegant bird die.  Whilst I have an addiction to bird style paraphernalia, I was not overly impressed by this die when I saw it in the catalogue.  To my surprise, after seeing Beth demoing its many uses, it grew on me and I am somewhat addicted to using this die now!  I loved her Peace banner she made.  You can see Beth's version HERE.

I loved it so much I decided I would recreate it using what I had in the way of supplies - it is pretty close to the original though.   Here is my version - it is quite long so hard to photograph!  It used lots of supplies but was well worth it.
