Happy Birthday Little Bird!

Had to use my tools I just got from Ellen Hutson, both are Martha Stewart punches: Double Scallop and Deep Edger - Daisy Fan. To make the circle behind the bird, I punched out the Daisy Fan twice and then cut them down to match the 2 fans.

I haven't done a Mojo Monday sketch for quite some time so I decided this was the week-end to take advantage of it. Such a neat layout and pretty simple too!  Below is the inside of the card.

I have also entered this in other challenges.

  1.  CCEE - inspiration challenge. I picked up on the brown and green colors with the little pop of reddish orange. I really like this combination!

  2. Mojo Monday Challenge to follow the sketch. I think I stayed pretty true to the sketch.

  3. Creative Card Crew - It's a celebration! I chose to celebrate Birthdays!

  4. The Pink Elephant - asked for green to be added to the color combo.

  5. By the Cute and Girly - set a spring theme, flowers and birds sing spring to me!

  6. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - set a Mothers Day/Flowers Challenge

  7. Gingersnap Creations - a Birthday theme, Happy on the front, Birthday on the inside!

  8. Hand Full of Stamps - To let it shine! Well, my DP has shine to it and spring is sunshine to me!

  9. Other Lovelies - think bright and warm and spring!

  10. Simon's Says - Mother's Day or Girly, ah-my DH wouldn't want this card so it must be girly!

  11. No Time to Stamp - punched borders, check out the inside!
  12. Rosie D's Challenge - Think spring!  Ahhhh...
No snow, but we're in for a week of rain - ah, the sounds and smells of spring - ah, the allergies!
