Chirpy Birdy Birthday Card

Chirpy birdy birthday card was created for my cousin Dawn. She celebrated her 25th sweet birthday in January and I thought of creating something cute for her as she’s into cutesy stuff. One good birthday card idea is to adopt a super cute birdy.

Inspiration came from the many cute little birds I’ve seen making their appearances on patterned papers, clear stamps, rubber stamps, bedsheets, and more.

I made this card for my friend, I just gathered different ideas from this site and threw them all together. I used a few different varieties of paper and a button. Elmer’s Glue for everything (which didn’t turn out perfect, the card is ‘bent’) but then again I didn’t use cardstock either :) Thanks for the inspiration!
