A birdie birthday

     My daughter has a birthday just a couple of days after Valentine's so I decided to combine the two for this card and go with pink, red, and hearts.  They work anytime, right?  LOL
     For this card I stamped the adorable Peep from Purple Onion Designs.  Peep has a little branch in his beak but I masked that off the stamp.  The String of Hearts is also POD.  I popped the bird/heart panel up on foam and the birthday sentiment was die cut four times for some dimension.  The happy is part of a POD sentiment.  My coloring was done with Prismas.

     Don't know if you noticed but I went with a much simpler blog layout.  Lots of clean white space.  What do you think?
     Finally some warmer temps here.  Hope you're warming up too.
     Be blessed!
