Have the Happiest Birthday!

Good evening!  I'm enjoying the start of a three day weekend by spending some time crafting.  Yay!!  :)  The weather is supposed to be nice this weekend, so I'm hoping to spend quite a bit of time outside as well.

This week over at Celebrate the Occasion, the challenge is Birthday and you must use twine and at least one button.  My card stash is always in need of birthday cards it seems, so this is perfect for me.  I went to my go-to cartridge for birthday cards, Birthday Bash, and started flipping through the handbook for an image I haven't used yet.  I saw this bird on the banner and thought it would be perfect to add some twine and ribbons to.  This is what I came up with.  Thanks for coming by to take a look!!
