Paper Smooches SPARKS-Happy Bird-Day

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! *** 

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge theme is Anything Goes.  I decided to fill in my stash of birthday cards with this card made with one of my first PS sets, Birthday Buddies.

Happy Bird-Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Paper Smooches
I colored the birthday birdie and hat with Copic markers.  The image was cut with the matching die from the Buddies set.  It was set on a yellow card base along with a pair of die cut circles.  I stamped the set's "happy bird-day" sentiment on a strip of coordinating orange cardstock and adhered it to the card, positioning it to ground the bird image.  A trio of sparkly gold sequins scattered around the image and circles completed the design.

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week based on the photo. Here’s where to find them:
