Birthday Birds

     I've done a birthday card for my son who has a June birthday just a week or so after Father's Day.  I try to do separate cards for him each year so that the two celebrations don't just get rolled into each other.

     This image has been colored and in my stash for a while and I can't remember who made it so if you know the artist, please let me know and I'll happily edit this post and give credit.

     I know it was colored with ProMarkers and I used a Lawn Fawn stitched die to cut it.  I cut another stitched piece to make the frame and layered it on top of the image.  Both of those went onto a card front which had blue CS and a polka dot piece of dp underneath the image.  That paper is digital and it was a left over scrap.  I added one of my small, hand-sewn bows and three tiny pearl brads.

      I printed the sentiment and cut it with one of the smaller Lawn Fawn dies, adjusting it and making two cuts so that what was a square die cut a rectangle for the sentiment.
