Birthday Birdie by Sherry Eckblad

Hello Ai Fans, Sherry here today sharing a fun card using one of my favorite animals. 

Meet Birthday Birdie (sku1863)! For those that don't know me I love chickens and roosters and have several kinds in my kitchen and others randomly placed around the house. (these are not real chickens/roosters in case you were wondering)

For this card I pulled out my color pencils and did a quick coloring of the image. Then I created a mask of the image and placed it over the image so I could quickly add some butter bar ink to the stencil. Once that was complete I added some alpha stickers from my stash to create the sentiment and then I placed it on the card using foam dots. I added a touch of glossy accents to the balloon for a little dimension.

That's it for me today. Make sure you check back here tomorrow as we are introducing some new images to you.
