Hi all! I hope you are all having a great day. We have had sunshine in the past few days. It inspired me to make this happy colored Happy Birthday card. I was also inspired by some of the cards in the Hero Arts Catalog. http://www.heroarts.com/products/2011Catalog.cfm Page 21 to be exact. :-)
I used my Silhouette to cut out the sunburst shape out of the dark yellow color. I put some sky and cloud patterned paper I have behind and it really started to take shape from there. I had an old sun shaped button in my button collection. I cut off the shank and adhered it with some mini glue dots. I stamped the grass and house with black Momentos ink and then colored everything in with my Copics. Before I adhered the house down I added some cotton from a cotton ball to the chimney and then put some foam adhesive behind the top of the house. The bottom and the grass are glued flat with some Quicky Glue. I stamped the bird separately and adhered it with some foam adhesive so it would be perched on the roof.
