"Birdday" card

Happy Sunday, friends. We have had 4 beautiful sunny days and only a few clouds. Yesterday a sprinkling of rain, but hardly worth mentioning. Today's card is another birthday one. This for a friend who loves birds. On one of my PCP groups, Anything but cute... we had to make a card, using a bird punch or template given us.

I used a brown card, with a mottled green paper. Onto this I stamped the grass using a Hero Arts stamp. I cut a bird from a piece of yellow/green DP using my Nesties bird set. I cut a smaller bird out of a plain green and trimmed it slightly for the wing, which I put through the cuttlebug.

Finished it off with a green polka dot ribbon and a sentiment stamped on cream card with brown ink. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy.

It was fun to do this one.

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead, I am trying to shake of a terrible cold that I picked up and is most unwelcome, but seems quite happy to stick around.

Warm wishes

Hi Ursie, loving the card and the clever way you put the bird together. Really got to invest in some nesties myself. Hope you feel better soon, and that the warmer weather stays a little longer this week :)
