I finally found a fun use for the rickrack ribbon in the Pigtails package. What do you think?

The sketch I used is today’s challenge on SCS (SC226), but I placed my circle on the right hand side because the birdie is “talking” to the left and I needed room to add my hand-made text balloon. This is a birthday card for a little boy, and I pulled out some retired patterned paper that might appeal to him. The bird was paper pieced: I stamped one image on the blue DSP and another one on Pumpkin Pie card stock (which I cut out and adhered to the blue circle).

Thanks for stopping by!

    Really cute card idea! I especially like the paper piecing to tie all the cardstock and papers together.
