A Very Birdy Birthday

I made this card for last weeks sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I have been so busy getting ready for my craft show, my Christmas Card Class on November 15th, and decorating the house for Christmas (Yes, I start this early, I decorate EVERY room in my house and it takes me about 3 weeks to finish! I'll post pictures when I'm done) that I haven't been able to participate in any challenges. I did however need birthday cards, and I loved this sketch, so I took the time to make this cutie.
I used Stampin Up! cardstock 'Bashful Blue', 'Rose Red', and 'Certainly Celery'. The images are the retired Stampin Up! 'Favorite Teddy Bear' and the current Stampin Up! 'Pun Fun'. The blue panel was embossed using my cuttlebug and cuttlebug embossing folder 'Swiss Dots'. One of the balloons is mounted up on dimensionals. The images were colored with copic markers. The ribbon is from Michaels.
If you'd like to order the Stamp Set 'Pun Fun', just email me or go directly to my website. You can also view this set in the current Stampin Up! catalog pictured in the sidebar of this post. Just click to view.
Have a great day! Amy
