Valentine bird - for a birthday


I know, not like me to post twice in one day is it?!  Scroll down to see my pencil coloured creation for Crafty Cardmakers.

I had an order from one of my regular customers for a birthday card for her mum, and conveniently Sally-Ann released these stunning Digistamp Boutique Valentine Bird images at the perfect time - I had a feeling my customer would like them and she did :o)  I know they're meant to be valentines images, but I think they work really well for birthdays too.

I've used black & white papers (the mainly white one is Doodlebug, spotty one is Papermania), with bright pink Papermill cardstock.  The flowers were cut with and x-cut punch, with spotty button centres.  Ric rac ribbon from my stash, and the 'mum' sentiment is from here, with a teeny pink heart pearl in the centre.

I've followed the sketch at Mojo Monday so I'm entering my card there.
