Blue Bird Birthday

Hello Friends ...
Can you believe another week is drawing to a close!
WOW!  The days are FLYING by ... what's up with that? 
They need to slow down ... I'm getting too old ... too fast!  LOL!

Anyways, I have a sweet card to share today that I made earlier in the week 
for the new sketch challenge at Mojo Monday.  
Here's the sketch . . .

and, here's my card.

I'm happy to say I was actually able to use up some bits & pieces that were laying on my work table.  Over the Easter weekend I was demonstrating to my mother how die cuts work and cut out this bird on a branch ... so figured THAT would make a nice focus for my card and quickly colored it with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I spent a few hours last week just making flowers using various dies and colors.
This flower was made using the Heartfelt Creations 'Botanical Rose' stamp & dies.
 All products used in making this card will be listed at the end of my post.

Also, I've been trying since the start of the new year to finish the inside of all my cards as I finish the fronts.  That way I usually have a scrap or two that was used on the front that can be used to coordinate the inside.  Otherwise I end up using it on something else and this card would be left plain on the inside.
