Wishing You A Swell Birthday

Hi there!  Sharing a birthday card with you today, and it features a bird.  I have come to know SO many stampers who love birds, that I could make a dozen of these and still not have enough to go 'round!


I'm trying to use up my stash of American Crafts metal badges, and this one is really cute.  (You can see another card using an AC badge here.)  The K & Co. birdie is perched on its edge, which I layered onto some patterned paper and then a doily die cut.  I used matte gold sequins bought at MJ Trimming in New York City back at Christmastime.


Thanks for coming by.  =D
I hope you all have a 'swell' day!

Oooh, pretty! I'll take a bird, too, please. Love the badge. I'm guessing the "swell" came with it and, if so, you used it very cleverly. Love the colors, and the bird is just fabulous!

Colleen, this is lovely! Great bird and design. It is very hard to beat a good bird card. BTW - I laughed at your comment on my bee card - I have ran around screaming many times trying to get away from bees. Hugz!
