BirdBrain Birthday Card

When I'm busy and I need to make a card I look up at all my supplies on the top of my wardrobe and find myself struggling to want to drag it all down and start. In those moments that I find time to drag it all down, I find myself easily creating a number of cards in such a short space of time that I wonder what took me so long. :)
This evening I managed to take down those supplies because I had a number of cards to prepare. A couple for my mum, who gave me a nice long list at the beginning of the year, and also a valentines card for my lovely boyfriend. I'm cutting it fine on making this one, although not as fine as I could have cut it. :P I won't show that card just yet, because he needs to see it first...but I will take photos and put it up at a later date. I'm very proud of it. 
Today's post will be dedicated to a birthday card I have made for mum and dad to give to my uncle. I love knowing  that every month there will be a beautiful image coming my way from 'From the Heart Stamps', which means that I have a reason to sit down and make sure I use the image from the current month. Motivation is a freebie, and a beautiful one at that. Thank you Faith Skrdla. :)

Here is my card and a list of the supplies used to make it: 

  • From the Heart Free Stamp - 'Birthday Candle BirdBrain'
  • Papermania Relations stamp set
  • Make & Create 5" x 7" White card blank
  • Promarkers - Honeycomb, China Blue, Mustard, Lime Zest 

    This is the inside of the card with the extra sentiments that came with the candle birdbrain image this month. This image is beautiful and the sentiments are so sweet. I really hope my uncle likes it. :) The challenge can be found here, and the shop can be found at this link. Please do go and take a look at all the beautiful cards that have been made using the beautiful image. :)

    Take care everyone. See you soon.
