Birthday Birdbrain

Birthday Card
 I have been down with my asthma for a week
so since I cannot do much I am making cards to have on hand.  Some of my favorite images are birdbrain digis from From The Heart Stamps like this guy Birdbrain Balloon.  For the challenge below, I sponged my grass by making a mask using Lawn Fawn's Grassy Border Die.  I sponged my border on an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock, then ran it back through the printer to print the sentiment.  I print out my bird and balloon, cut them apart, colored them up and popped them up making a pop up using paper (a hollow square that folds flat to mail).  I added twine for the balloon. 

This guy is for From The Heart Stamps 
I used the twist - add some nature
 (I sponged my grass).

This is awesome, Lisa and great take with our Twist this week. I like how the Birdbrain is sitting in the grass and how you´ve added the twine.
Thanks for joining our Sketch Challenge with a Twist # 135 @ From the Heart Stamps !

Ah, Lisa, so sorry you've not feeling well. I am praying for you to feel better. But it's nice that you were able to make cards...such a nice way to rest and enjoy. And you get to delight us all. I too just love the digi and may have to get it - he's way too adorable, and you make the sweetest cards and color them perfectly! I love the grass border too. You are an enabler - hehe! Hugs, sweet friend, and feel better!
