Happy Bird-day

well...not yet but I wanted to get my Mom's Birthday card done early.  It seems every year I'm either rushing, shipping it FedEx (close by since I work there) or sending it late.  This year I'm pleased to say it's done and ready to go!   Yay,  I just might be on-time.   I'm worried because we're busy moving my son to college the weekend before her special day so it's a good thing to have this card done early.  

The colors were selected for this weeks The Paper Players Challenge - Lucky Limeade, Calapyso Coral and Daffodil Yellow.  Fortunately for me I had some DSP scraps of these colors thanks to my SU! Demo who invited me to her Open House and shared.   It was a little more tricky to add the yellow but it's in there.  My Mom likes bright colors so she will enjoy this.   I used the birds from an older SU! stamp that was out on my desk since I'm going through an unmounting project.  The sketch is from this weeks iSpy Sketches #23.  It worked great for the scraps I had to use.   Happy Bird-day to my Mom!

Supplies:  SU! Kraft,  DSP (?),  Stamps SU! Love Ya Bunches,  SU! Ink Soft Suede,  SU! Ribbon & Brads Sale-A-Bration
