A Bluebird Birthday

Happy Monday!


I couldn't help but play along one more time in the Seize the Birthday Challenge.
which is Anything Goes Birthday if you're not inspired to use
their 'Toppings Option'.  Which as you can see, I was inspired!!  LOL
 
  Their "Toppings" option this time is
"BIRDS"

 
I had actually begun my card for a sketch challenge, only to find that the challenge time had lapsed!  So, I turned things around a bit and continued on!   Once again I used a recently purchased  paper pack from the Dies R Us Store by Pink & Main called 'Frosty' for my background.
 
Pink & Main - Paper Pad - 6
 
 Dies used on this project are Die-namites 'Birds on a Branch, Tutti Designs 'Scalloped Stitched Nesting Squares' and 'Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangles'.   I die cut the Birds on a Branch from two different colors then did a bit of fussy cutting to combine the two.  My birthday sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts.

 
Challenges to share in:
 QKR Stampede Challenge - Anything Goes
 Make My Monday Challenge #68 - Things with Wings

 Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you've found inspiration in today's design!
 
As Always . . .

Gee, a Die-namites bird die I don't have? Imagine that! This one is beautiful and I love what you've done with it. Birds and butterflies... I like how you carried that theme over to your sentiment panel, too. And, BTW, love that sentiment stamp. You can never have too many sentiments. You must be in paper heaven with all that purple. Pretty!

Very pretty, I love the soft background for your die cut of birds, you did a great job fussy cutting and putting it all together, pretty nuvo drop embellishing along with the sweet little butterflies around the sentiment!
