BC142 - Songbird Birthday Wishes

It's Friday and time for the Blogger Challenge.  This weeks theme is, Birthdays (we all have them and we all need cards for them).  Since I was late getting started on my card due to hand issues (yes they get sore and some days they hurt more then others) I opted for a non-stamped card today.
I can't take credit for this design since it's largely cased from a card made by the fabulous Kim Hughes out of the current Stamp It Cards issues (Page 16).  She stamped a bird image, I chose to punch mine using the new SU XL Two-Step bird punch currently available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. 
The paper I used for this card is from the Sweet Pea Designer series pack also available in the Occasions Mini catalog as are the Sweet Pea felt flowers that I used.
The sentiment is a rub-on from the Chit Chat rub-ons (SU).  I did use 3 Olive Sprinkles available from Annabelle Stamps.   The ribbon is retired SU and the birds eye is a tiny Zva pearl from Hope Stamps Eternal.

I hope you enjoy this card as I think it's perfect for a Spring time birthday.  Don't forget to check out the other BC members blogs (click on the Icon on my sidebar) and check out their fabulous birthday creations.

Ida,

Cased or not, I love this card! Sometimes non-stamped cards are just as good or better than stamped card and this one is a winner to me!
