I felt like making a festive birthday card this week, so I pulled together a few challenges and came up with this birthday bird. I used a sketch from Die Cuttin Divas for the layout of the card. I mostly used regular cardstock, with the exception of the Happy Birthday paper and the starburst blue paper, which were from a 6x12 stack I had in my cupboard, which I'm pretty sure was from Paper Studio.
I cut the bird from Birthday Bash and he came out a little bigger than I had planned, but I moved the balloon down a little and made it work. I think since the bird alone was the main image, it sized it based only on the bird and the balloon was just extra inches. Live and learn. :) The two black rhinestones are from Recollections.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Cardz TV- Make a Wish (Child’s Birthday Card)
Pile it on Challenges- Happy Birthday
Fantabulous Cricut- Bye, Bye, Birdie
Die Cuttin Divas- Try a sketch
