I once got a birthday card that had drawings of cutsie little animals on it. There were a couple frogs, a bird and two lambies with musical notes drawn on it. On the inside the sentiment was Hoppy Birdie Two Ewes. I've never been able to get that little sing song out of my head. Perhaps I have just gifted you with that little song, my apologies.
This week the Pile It On Challenge #14 is Birthday, and the little birdie song was going through my head when I thought about what image I was going to use for the card. The Pile It On gimmick is that you have to combine their challenge with at least one other challenge so I found a couple others to use for my card.
This little birdie is from the Inkadinkado (my favorite company name ever) "Birds Galore" set. I stamped it in Stampin' Up Ballet Blue onto white card stock which I promptly dirtied up by sponging Ranger tea dye and SU Basic Gray ink all over. I matted it with a piece of DCWV card stock that is as close to Soft Suede as I could find. I chose these colors for the SP Color Combo Cahllenge #14 to use Ballet Blue, Basic Gray and Soft Suede. The layout for this card is from the MOJO Monday 103 Contest. I used SU DSP Bella Bleu papers which were also sponged with the tea dye and basic gray. They were matted with grey card stock which was also used for the card base. The sentiment is from the MFT "You Take the Cake" set and is stamped in basic gray on brown card stock. A tiny strip of the brown is used in lieu of a ribbon and the bottom edge of the printed paper was punched with an EK Success Dotted Wave punch.
