Too Early for Spring Birds???

It is a bit early here in Minnesota for spring birds to be around. I haven't seen any yet and I hope not to. There is at least a food of snow on the ground and spring birds would starve. But this little birdie is just stopping by to wish someone a Happy Birthday!!!

This is a very easy card to make. You are wondering about that interesting background, aren't you??? I used the "Dotted Lines" wheel. You go in all directions. From top to bottom then side to side. Turn and do corner to corner and repeat for the other corner. And you get this fun background!! I've used it on several cards and I REALLY like it. I hope it's a stamp that doesn't retire for a LONG time.

I colored the bird in using the Bashful Blue marker and a blender pen. For the shadow under the bird I used the piece of card stock the oval words were punched from and I sponged in some Yo Yo Yellow and I added a little Mellow Moss on top of that. Not much coloring to this card. VERY simple and quick to make.

This card was made entirely with Stampin' Up! products. Click here to see more Stampin' Up! only cards!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

It may be simple but it's SO adorable! I was on the fence about this stamp set, but this card has made me realize I have to have it. And as I gaze out at the blanket of snow covering everything (New Brighton PA), it's never too early for spring birds! Your site is one of my top favorites. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful ideas! - Susan :-)
