Birthday Birds

This morning I have a card that I will link up to 2 challenges. I used the inspiration photo
at Just Us Girls and since it's a birthday card it will work for the Seize the Birthday
challenge as well, which has a toppings option but I chose not to go with it.

When I saw those cute little birds on the spools I knew I had to pull out my Taylored
Expressions Bless Your Nest stamp set with and coordinating dies. I also used the colors in 
the photo. The oval dies were cut with a set of Sizzix framelits and I used a Cuttlebug 
embossing folder. The banners were free handed.  I think I've become banner obsessed 
here lately! I'm pleased with the way it all turned out and I don't say that often. Thanks for 
taking a look!
