Happy Bird-day

Here's my card for this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS anything goes challenge.  I used the current sketch from Retro Sketches to make a punny birthday card with the Birthday Buddies stamp set.

Happy Bird-day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I covered a white card base with a pink striped paper panel.  The busy stripes were broken up with solid cardstock strips--a wide rose strip topped with a narrower yellow strip and a narrow pale pink strip.  I stamped the bird image on white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers to match the card's color scheme, then used dimensional dots to adhere it to the cardfront.  The set's "happy bird-day" sentiment was stamped just beneath the bird in black ink.  A trio of white sequins framing the birdie added a final festive touch to the card.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papersPaper Smooches Birthday Buddies stamp set; Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink; My Mind's Eye Now and Then-Dorothy 6x6 paper pad; white sequins; Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Blushing Bride, Regal Rose, and Barely Banana cardstock (Stampin' Up!)
