Birthday Sundaes Challenge #34

The current challenge at Birthday Sundaes is to create a birthday card with birthday wording on the front. Now how much easier could that be?! I just purchased the Christmas Cards Cartridge for a mere $14!! I was thrilled!! The little bird caught my eye. I thought it would be perfect on a birthday card. I powered up my Gypsy Girl and went to work. I didn't want the birdhouse and the sentiment to cut so I used the hide contour on my Gypsy Girl. I had also hid the face features 'cus I wanted to stamp a face. I used Peachy Keen stamp set Everyday Character Face Parts and More. I stamped the beak first and because I thought the eyes were to close together, I taped over one, stamped it and then did the other so they would be right where I wanted them! I felt I needed to mount this cute little birdie on something so I went hunting on my Lacy Labels Cartridge for something. I cut this shape and it's shadow. Put some Blossom twine from The Twinery around the top piece and popped it over the shadow. The polka dot paper is from American Crafts and the others papers are from my scrapbin. The sentiment is a wooden stamp. I thought I was finished but I felt it needed something else. I had picked up these little polka dot buttons by Studio G at Walmart and decided that would be the perfect finishing touch. So here you are. Another birthday card! Oh I almost forgot, I used Lavender Stickles on the pompom and cuff of the boggin! There is still time to enter this challenge. You have until Saturday. Hope ya'll like my card!!! :)
