Birthday Wishes

I was playing with one of the Sale-a-bration sets, "Up in the Air."  This one had a bird house hanging form it but I thought I would combine the "Aviary" set with this one.  I like how the bird cage hung down lower than the bird house did.  And the birdhouse image also had the words "welcome" on it and I taped over that too so I could add the bird cage. 

I did color in all of the flowers and after I got done with that I thought it looked too flat so I punched out some flowers.  I took the stylus and rolled it around the center of the  little flowers so they would curl up a bit and in the center of them I added little pearls.  Click on the photo for a closer view. 

I used the Wisteria Wonder color card stock for the base of the card.  I textured the front and then added a piece of Daffodil Delight under the Whisper White.  Before I taped the white on top of the yellow I added the ribbon.  I also waited to add the flowers until after I taped the layers together. 

The two layers are added to the base of the card using Dimensionals. 

This was a very fun and fairly easy card to make.  On the make or not make again scale of 1 to 10.  1 being not very likely to make again and 10 being very likely I would give this card a 9!  

I'm still working on that project and I'm hoping to have it done in a couple of days.  It will be so well worth the wait so be sure to check in to see if it's ready yet!

I'm off to bead for a while tonight.  I've been working extra hours at work and I have not had time to bead at all.  Imagine this:  you're in a bead shop all day working and you have no time to play with any beads!!!  Isn't that a sad story?  LOL  We've had a busy week at the shop and busy is always good!!  So tonight I'm done in my workroom early and I'm heading upstairs where it is warmer and I'm going to bead for a while.  And of course, I will show you what I am beading, one - if I finish it and two - if it turns out!!!

Thank you every so much for visiting today,
