Bird on a Branch For You Birthday RAK Card

I needed to send out four birthday cards in September as a member of the Birthday RAK group on Splitcoast Stampers.  I used two cards from my stash but I also made two new cards -  this new card went to okell. 

The card is a DL size made with textured white CS.  The colour scheme for this card was totally inspired by the piece of patterned paper I chose for the card front.  I love this mix of colours together!  I used Nesties for the image panels and sentiment circles.  I used my marker pens to added teal detailing to the tail and a chocolate eye on the bird.  The bird and the teal panel are popped up. 

I also sent okell a 6" ruler decorated with the same Sweet Pea patterned paper I used on the card but I didn't take a photo.
