I have 3 birthday cards to share with you today,
all with humorous sentiments
~enjoy~
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
entering this card into:
 
Inkspirational - Challenge #5 Anything Goes
It looks like a very simple card and it started out that way too. I used the image from the paper as the base for my card and added a funny sentiment.
 
I love to add detail to my cards that don't add bulk but have as much "ohhh ahhh" factor as splashy big bows, or heavy buttons....so I add sewing. I hand stitched around the bird, branch and leaves using colors as closely related as I could manage with my DMC floss. It's a nice attention to detail with a bonus of a tactile finish.

Faber Castell - PITT pen
( I cannot seem to stop using this font, it's getting as bad as Comic Sans, lol I might need a font intervention!! )
? - paper
 ( it's been in my stash for ages, and this is the last piece of it. I loved the other side which is a random script print but I had cut this section off knowing that one day I would use it to make a card from it. I'm glad I finally got around to it. I'm thinking it's either Prima or My Minds Eye. )
