Seize the Birthday - Birds

Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday!

    Our "Toppings" option this time is...

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If you're not a toppings kinda person, can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

The choice is yours!

Here is the card that I did for this challenge.  I had a bit of a time trying to come up with a card.  But in the end, I am very happy with this one.  

Here are the  supplies for this card:
Card stock Gina K white cut into a 4 1/2 X 4 1/2 squard card base. 
Dies are Elizabeth Craft Lovebirds and Frantic Stamper 
Square Tangled Frames
Sentiment is from Gina K Designs Birthday Greetings.  
I sponged some Spiced Marmalade ink on the front and then 
place the die that I colored with more distress ink in blue and green. 
I die cut the tangled frames twice and cut themapart to use on corners.  
I really like how this turned out.  Don't forget the inside, it is important too. 

We have lots of inspiration for you at Seize the Birthday. 
We also have a super creative Surprise Party Guest too.  
Her name is Kim Lackenback
Hope to see your fun and beautiful birthday cards with and without birds  

Thanks for stopping by, I do enjoy your comments.  Hope I have inspired you.
