Seize the birthday with anything that flies

Hi there!

Time to create some birthday cards !


                                        Seize the Birthday



For the next 2 weeks we invite you to share any newly created birthday card with the option of : anything that flies ... yes show us some wings!

My inspiration looks like this:


yellow bird and polka dot birthday card

I created the polka dotted circle background the same way as described here by double masking and coloring the dots with my promarkers.

I added a Silhouette cut yellow bird and a hero arts sentiment. 3 Enamel dots to complete the picture.

Your sweet little yellow songbird sure does pop against the cute black & 'polkie' dotted background! Love the sentiment - which Hero Arts set is it from?

I'm thinking that must be a canary, Hannelie ... it's so striking and lovely against your double masked background ... gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)

This reminds me of that song, "Yellow Bird, high up in banana tree." I sing it every time I see a yellow bird so it's running through my head right now. lol Love him on the polka dotted paper. I missed the original polka dot post but went back to see it. That's a lot of work but well worth it.

Joe, jou kaartjies is darem net altyd een groot plesier om te aanskou, vrou!!!! Wat 'n lieflike voeltjie so mooi afgeets teen die vrolike polka dot agtergrond!!! Alles is net eenvoudig perfek gedoen en in absolute balans!!!! Mal oor die heldergeel wat jy vir die voeltjie gekies het en die font van die sentiment is pragtig!!! Dis eenvoudig net weer stunning, vrou!!!
Groete

This card is perfect. The graphic images paired with the flourish sentiment. The black and white with that amazing pop of yellow. Even your placement of the PP so the polka dots could do their thing. Wow!
