Sketched Composition Birthday

Welcome back!  I have a quick and easy card to share today.  I pulled out some of the retiring Natural Composition designer paper intending to make a masculine birthday card, but somehow it morphed into this:

I have a box of designer paper scraps, which I pulled out to find something that would look good with the card base.  When I found this scrap of Spice Cake dp, the rest of the details came together quickly and a more feminine card emerged, with scallops and ruffled ribbon.

The sentiment and bird image were stamped in Soft Suede on Confetti Cream that was punched with the Scallop Tag Topper punch.  The bird was colored using a blender pen very lightly dipped in More Mustard ink, which resulted in a far lighter (and more natural looking) color.

I added the Soft Suede Candy Dots but I'm ambivalent about how they look, so they may be removed and saved for another card.

Thanks for taking a look and if you have a moment to leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
