Birthday Wishes


Hello everyone! Here is the card that I made for a couple of challenges! The first is Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday challenge which was to use Straight From The Nest. The second is for Tattered Time's CCCC challenge which is Birthday Cakes or something similar. I don't own BC but I saw an image that was close to this bird.
I cut the card base and layers from Straight From The Nest. I embossed the white circle with the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder and added a white stitching line around the outside of the card. The bird was also cut from SFTN and I stamped the face with Peach Keens Everyday Character Face stamps. The balloons were cut from Create A Critter and I tied a twine bow and added twine for the string. The sentiment tag I cut by hand and stamped the sentiment with a Stamp'n Up stamp. To finish I added Glossy Accents to the balloons, the pom on the hat, the eyes and the beak.
I hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for looking! Take Care!
