PP337 More Birthday Birds

Hi peeps!  Sunday brings us another Paper Players challenge with Claire as our sketch hostess!  Wowza, I loved this one and I got a chance to play with lots of goodies to create my card today!

I seem to have birds on my mind lately!  I needed a birthday card for my SIL, and I felt like doing something vintage, so I pulled out some pretty neutral papers and a couple vintage sets:

The birds and the sentiment are from a Crafty Secrets set called Bird Lovers; they were stamped in Tip Top Taupe and Soft Suede, with sponging all around:

The background on the vertical panel is from an Artistic Outpost set called Birds of a Feather, and I don't normally put real buttons on my cards anymore as it costs more postage, but since this card is being hand-delivered, I added a vintage button and some velveteen ribbon as an accent:


And on the inside of the card (Tip Top Taupe), I added some sentiments from another Crafty Secrets set called Garden Girls; I thought the vintage font fit the theme of my card!

I hope you like the sketch as much as I do and play along with us!  You can see what the others created here:

Finally....a nice day, a walk in the park, fun in the sun!
