Happy Birthday someone very close to my heart! 

Hi everybody! For today's card, I used one of my Katzelkraft birds. 
I colored with felt pens and some water - just like the die-cut balloons. 
After drying I fussy-cut the bird and gave him googly eyes.

I cut a white cardstock panel in a little smaller size than my card base and stamped numbers at the bottom. Then I die-cut each character of the "JOYEUX" 4 times and paste them together (I just love do this). I stamped the "anniversaire" and pasted the "JOYEUX".
I fixed the bird and the balloons with foam pads, attached a thread at each balloon and put them in the bird's beak. 
...and the last thing was to glue the whole panel to the card base.

Items I used to create my card: (the heart dies are from Poppy Stamps)


Thanks for stopping by.
