Birdie Birthday

I made this card for this month's Power & Spark challenge at Power Poppy.  This time, the lovely and talented Kathy Jones asks us to "Be Happy" - by making a card using lots of things beginning with "B".  My first thought, of course, was to use the colour blue, so I started with Blue cardstock and a Border die (Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One) and layered on Blue paper from Kaisercraft's Konstruct Collection.  Then I added some Braid, a Birthday sentiment (from Power Poppy's Go Wild stamp set), also a Banner from JustRite Buntings and Button Die set, plus some Buttons.  Finally I stamped this great image from Power Poppy's Short Stacks stamp set, which features a Bird, coloured it with copics, cut it out and popped it up with foam tape. Oh! and I did all the stamping with Black ink!!  What a fun challenge this is........thanks Kathy!

Copic Colours used were:  YG11, YG13, YG17, BV00, BV01, RV00, RV02, Y00, Y11, B00, B000, B21, B23.

Thanks for coming to visit!
