Birthday card featuring a cute little bird, a digital greeting and some decorative paper

Making cards for family birthdays!!  I started with a large envelope and made a black card to fit inside.  I printed the coloured cute bird digital (Melonheadz) on white cardstock and trimmed it.  to the image I added two lines using gel pens - peacock and royal blue then a row of black dots using a fine Sharpie marker.  I used watercolour to fill in the "BIRTHDAY" in the digital greeting (Desert Diva) I added before I printed it.   To finish it off and add a bit more texture I used my distress tool on the edges.  I added a piece of coordinating colour printed decorative paper to my black card and then added a strip to which I had added five pewter eyelets on the right hand side.  To finish off my card, I added my large image using 3D foam tape.  Happy with the way it turned out!!         Therese
