Birthday card for my Sister

  Hello so happy you stopped by. Today I am sharing a birthday card that I made for one of my sister's. Had to add some purple because her favorite color is purple. It's also my favorite.

 The birds are from a stamp and die set from Pretty Pink Posh. First time using them. Used alcohol markers to color them. I hadn't done any coloring for a while, so I had fun. I like coloring smaller images rather than larger ones. 

 I'm not very good at coloring and large images are kind of intimidating and makes me nervous.

This was my first time using this die. Can't remember where I got it. I have all of my dies out of there packaging and put in binders with magnetic sheets. 

I made the sentiment on my computer and then printed it out. It's so nice to be able to do that when you don't have the right stamp. The font is from Dafont. It's called Small Kitchen. 

Cardstock that I used are Old Olive, Black and White. The Gingham paper I had in my stash.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my latest card. Thanks again for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day and God bless!
