***Happy Birthday Birdie***

I have so been wanting to make some birthday cards to put in my stash!!!  I think the cuts on Birthday Bash are just the cutest!!  Right up there with Create a Critter and Simply Charmed!!!  So i decided as I was leafing thru the manual to try one using the pendent cut with the birdie!!!  Isn't she just the cutest!!! Maybe next time I will put something on the pendants Letters of some sort???

Cartridges used:  Birthday Bash  pg 39 in manual

Used the card/tag feature for the base of the card sizing it to the size I wanted with my gypsy. (10.00x6.25)
Used the Banner cut  Layered at 3.35  for all the banner cuts except for the undersides of the pendents which I cut from the font on page 61 of the manual to fancy up the pendant rope!!  I also made some paper that i cut one of the layers out with on my imagine and cut out the layer with my expression. 

I used a Martha Stewart punch, buttons from my stash Tim Holtz frayed burlap for the inking I did  and i tied the buttons with bows from some braiding cord I got at Walmart!!! 
Think it turned out all right for a generic birthday card for anyone of any age don't you!!!
