Silly Birds!

I won this fab digi stamp a couple of months ago...but this is the first time I've used it...it's called 'Silly Birds with Hats' from Hambo Stamps. I've made this card for the Dare U 2 Digi Stamp 'No Patterned Paper' challenge...and if you know me...you'll know that this really was a challenge! lol
Although saying that...I've got three more cards to show you this week that don't use any patterned papers either...I guess they must be like buses! lol
As the birds have wings...I'm also going to enter this into the Totally Papercrafts 'Things with wings' challenge.
I followed the sketch from Create4Fun...rotating it to fit my image.
I used my Cuttlebug 'Happy Birthday', 'Swiss Dots' and 'Spots & Dots' folders to emboss the papers, lightly sanding the surface to reveal the detail.


I didn't add any extra embellishments as I think this card would be suitable for a boy's birthday...so with that in mind...I'm also entering it into the following challenges:

My Time to Craft - 'Kids Cards'
Crazy4Challenges - 'Men'
Creative Inspirations - 'Male'
