Sunny Card for a Sunny Friend
I thought of her immediately when I found this digi at Bugaboo. Denise is like a sunny little bird hopping around making other's lives better. So I made it into this card. Papers are from my stash so I can't tell you who designed them. The Happy Bird-Day stamp is Stampin UP and I colored it with my copics. The flag was wrapped around a popsicle stick. I broke the popsicle stick in half, cut a slit in the birds wing with my Exacto Knife and slid the stick in it. I cut the ballon with a Sissix die, popped it up and tied some bakers twine around the base. I slid it with the popsicle stick to make it look like the bird was holding them both. You probably can't see this, but I smudged a little Pearlescent chalk on the presents to give them a subtle bit of sparkle.
The inside sentiment came from Bugaboo too and it said Have a Sweet Birday. You can get the stamps here. Mine were a Freebie (the best kind) offer, but go check it out. They offer freebies regularly and they design some mighty cute stamps.
Happy to say when I gave Denise her card, she laughed at me. She thought I was silly for being upset. Are you surprised by her response after the description I just gave you of her? Denise has a website and gives home parties teaching others how to make cards. Go check her out at Messn With Paper.
