Birthday Wishes

Yipppeee it's been raining ....  and it's cooool

I put together this card with pieces from my stash --  the embossed background where I had smooched Distress Inks onto the flat surface before running through the machine.  My crazy bird was already watercoloured with DI - I added buttons, and hand drew a cap with stitching and coloured with pencils, then attached with foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped on a scrap cut off the background panel and I framed it with black card and raised it with foam tape.
I am playing along with Watercooler Wednesday WWC#259 - Dawn's challenge - Anything Goes with a Masculine Twist   .....    also with The Male Room challenge #130 - Use Embossing    ....    and  Just Add Ink challenge #493 Just Choose Two -  I chose stitching and buttons.
Thanks for stopping by my blog  ---   have a Happy Day
