B is for . . .

The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week is to use this letter as inspiration or share what B stands for in your crafting. Check out the Monday Challenge Blog for all the details.

For my project B is for birthdays! I started by coloring a piece of manila cardstock with distress spray stain. I stamped one of the birds from Bird Crazy and "happy birthday" from Handwritten Sentiments on the manila cardstock. Next I stamped the bird again on watercolor paper, colored him with distress inks and cut out. For the balloon I used a punch, kraft-core cardstock, sandpaper, distress ink and string. I then adhered the bird and balloon to the manila cardstock. To finish I attached it all to a A2 card created from kraft-core cardstock. I gotta say, that bird makes me smile. This stamp set is definitely one of my favorites from Tim's latest release. Thanks for stopping by!
