Hi everyone!  It seems I have another card to make.  My sister is having a birthday this month.  She doesn't really have an issue with her age.  I just wanted to tease her a bit as she will get this post before she gets the card.  So HAPPY BIRTHDAY BECK!  I hope you like your card.  Becky has five children.  Each of them fly around her house on a daily basis.  Yes you guessed it.  They are all birds.  I fashioned this one after her son Ferguson.  He doesn't have any red, I just thought I would give him some extra color for his mom's birthday.  

This gorgeous image comes from Doodle Pantry.  I love their work.  Such cute little animals, especially the birds.  I colored him with Whisper Strokes markers and some Stickles by Ranger.  The sketch is from Crafting When We Can.  I have included the sketch below.  The papers come from Doodle Pantry, Bazzill and my Stash 'O Scraps.  I used buttons from Bo Bunny, pearls from Queen & Co., ribbons from Darice and Offray and the sentiment is from Desert Diva.  

As some of you may know I did a guest designer spot in February for Sassy Studio Designs.  Well I am trying out now for a spot on the DT for Crafting When We Can.  I have seen the other ones trying out for this spot and I'm not sure of my chances (especially since I saw Regan trying out) but I am going to give it a shot anyway.  Please wish me luck!

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Doodle Pantry #23 - Use a DP image
Party Time Tuesdays #66 - Use two or more ribbons
Paper Playtime #73 - Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything birthday

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog.  Have a blessed day and as always thank's for stopping by.

Such a great card for your bird lovin' sister! The first thing that caught my eye (other than the beautiful bright colors) was the paper piecing - nice job!

Robin, your card is just adorable. I am so in awe that you can remember where everything is from that you used on the card. I have such trouble remembering where all the paper and embellies come from. I was impressed! I'm sure your sister will love this one. Good luck with your try-out! You did a great job with this sketch!
