Happy bird-day!

Today's card is totally Cricut-less!  Can you believe it?  I wanted to play along with some challenges and just didn't feel like getting out my little end table, setting up the Cricut, untangling the cord, etc.

I have a simple black base with a white piece of paper that has been stamped with the Fiskar's "Threading Water" border punch.  I stamped the sentiment and the bird from Jaded Blossom's "Bird-Day" stamp set, which was free with a purchase during their release weekend this February.    Then I stamped the bird twice more onto a sheet of pink cardstock.  I cut around the entire bird and glued it down over where I had stamped onto the white cardstock (except for the beak and feet), and then but around just the wing, popped it up with a foam square, and covered it with Fruit Punch stickles.

For a finishing touch, I added a strip of Target brand Washi tape down the left side.  Clean and Simple!
