Birdie Happy Anniversary Card

My friend Kath asked me to make an anniversary card for her and I thought the birdie with his heart shaped wing would be perfect! I've made this card very similar to the gnome card I made a little while ago.

I dug out some self adhesive gingham fabric paper and stamped the bird body onto that, I stamped the whole bird onto white CS, got fussy cutting and popped up the gingham piece.  I coloured the beak with a black permanent ink pen and added a jewel for the eye.  I stamped the heart wing a few times onto red dotty paper, fussy cut them and added Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details glitter glue to add sparkle.  I stamped the clouds background, adhered that together with some grassy paper to a Crumb Cake panel and I added the die cut fence.  I glued the whole panel to the Riding Hood Red 5 3/4" card base and popped up the bird.  I generated the sentiment on the computer using the Sofia font, added the strip and popped up two hearts.

Here's the inside and the envelope flap.  I punched some hearts and also added two hearts I'd stamped and fussy cut earlier.  I stamped the sentiment onto the red dotty heart and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I hope Ian and Jan liked the card, I'm happy to say Kath did!
