Bird Birthday Card

Happy Saturday!

It has been a few days since my last post.  In that time I have made four birthday cards and finishing up a fifth today.  A busy birthday card making week!

The first card made was for my friend Janice.  Her and I frequent crafty stores together so I decided to use paper we had both purchased on one of our shopping trips: sei Field Notes.  I also wanted to go with a bright, summery theme so the paper was a perfect fit. The bird image was taken from the paper and used as the main focus of the card front.  Yellow card stock paper was cut using Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle.  Vellum paper was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I tied green twine around the front and added a Recollections flower embellishment.

The inside also contains the embossed vellum.  The sentiments "Friends fill you heart with joy, your soul with sunshine, and your heart with love" (TPC Studio set Card Crafting Hello) and "Birthday Wishes" (JustRite).

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday!

This card is entered in the following challenges:
