I have seen literally dozens of beautiful black and white cards made with this set, due to the Designer Series Paper that complements it so well.
Today, I challenged myself to do something completely different. I could have gone with soft spring colors, but decided to attempt the look of a night sky instead.
My starting point was the rich color of Fresh Fig, which is found in the background piece from the Myths and Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (145600).
In order to keep the nighttime look, I stamped the bird from Petal Palette (145788) on a scrap of Fresh Fig card stock (144242). I then die cut the bird and the branch using Dies from the Petals and More Thinlits Dies (145655). The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped on Basic Gray card stock (121042), then die cut with a Petals and More die. NOTE: you can currently purchase both the stamp set and the dies at a 10% savings by using item number 145974.
I covered the branch with Clear Wink of Stella, then adhered it to the starry sky. Next, I created a nest for my little bird. The nest is Copper Metallic Thread (141696), and her eggs are Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes (145632).
I mounted the centerpiece with a thin matt of Basic Gray, then attached it to a cardbase of Thick Whisper White (140272).
