Tweet Happy Birthday Card...

Hey Ya'll
Well, I have a very "Tweet" Birthday Card to share with you today.  This is a card that I made for my Aunt's birthday that's coming up.  This was so much fun to create!
 I used a stamp set from Hot Off The Press called "Sweet Tweets".  When I got this stamp set, I thought it was very pretty, but when I looked at it, I thought... What in the heck am I gonna do with that?!?  So... This is what I came up with.
 I stamped several different bird houses, cages and birds from the set in black.  I then used colored pencils and colored here and there.  Still too chicken to try markers.  Hee! Hee!  I used CTMH Art Philosophy to cut out the label shape and the Happy Birthday stamp that came with the set for the sentiment.
 I stamped a couple of large birds, colored them and cut them out with a craft knife.  I then added a couple of silk roses that were in the old stash on both ends.  They just went really well with this design.
I did the same paper on the inside.  I didn't want to take too much away from the beautiful stamping, so I just did the same label shape that was on the front to write in a sentiment.  When it was all done, I was really proud with the way that it turned out.  The card base is pink and everything was inked with Cocoa Ink from CTMH.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this card and sincerely appreciate you sharing your time with us today!
