Birthday Bird


Hi everyone, hope you have all had a fabulous Christmas.... One more day off for me before back to work on Wednesday Boo!!!!!!
Todays card is made using Birds and Roses from Heart Song Designs.
Am really aiming to do less cute and girly cards this year as hubby has had a moan.... lol..
I coloured the image with copics and had a play with my new sewing machine!  Love it!!!!  So much more reliable than the little one that I was using before!  Think you will be seeing much more sewing on my cards now! The papers are First Edition Birdsong and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Sparkles Forum Challenges - Anything BUT a Christmas Card
Crafty Boots - Celebrations
The Paper Shelter - Lace
