Birdie Birthday

This card was created for two challenges – an Embellish color/technique challenge (Color with a Border), and a Just Add Ink sketch (jai6).

I am really happy with how this turned out! The birdhouses were actually what got me started on this card – I thought they would be a cute way of fulfilling the sketch. The technique challenge was to use a border. I only have a couple border punches, but I like this new one. The focal circle is more like a frame; I like the look of the yellow polka dot paper behind the scallop.

Happy Birthday

  1. This is fantastic, Karen! Great design elements here – I love the tall bird house, the ribbon treatment and that punched border along the top.

  2. Oh gosh, that little birdie is soooo cute! I love the DSP too. And such a lucky bird, he has 3 gorgeous houses to choose from!
