Happy Birthday Old Bird (C4C44, JUGS40)


Greetings! Hope you had a Happy 4th of July!  My closest friend from college had her 50th birthday on Saturday and this is the card I made for her.  I'm most excited about the fact that I will be able to give it to her in person since she and her family are coming to visit tomorrow.  I usually make her something with owls because we were in Chi Omega together.  There is very little stamping on this card - the sentiment is from Inkadinkado and the branch and leaves are from this year's Round and Round anniversary set from PTI.  I cut one of the owls from the  patterned paper and perched it on my branch.

For the inside, I used a sentiment from Heidi Grace, combined with a couple of PTI stamps.  I'm hoping the sappy sentiment on the inside will make up for the sentiment on the front (click on the photo to see it larger)!  I cut out another bird from the patterned paper and popped it up with foam tape next to the sentiment.

The patterned papers are from My Little Shoebox's Whoo Loves You? collection, the pink ribbon is from Stampin' UP, the piece of yellow ric rac is the last bit from my stash and the buttons and twine are from PTI.  The card is based on this week's sketch from Just Us Girls (JUGS40).  The two layers of ribbon on the front qualifes it for this week's Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C44) challenge to use at least two ribbons.

Enjoy the rest of your week!  Thanks for stopping by!
