Birthday Birdie


Good Morning, Everyone!  Today I would like to share a card I made with a new Doodle Pantry image called Birthday Birdie.  It is one of the new releases that  Laurie Wilson is adding to her store today.  I just love this sweet image. 


After coloring my image with Copics, I added a distressed look to the edges by sponging with distress inks and heat embossing with embossing powder.  I also added two coats of Utee to the entire panel... sorta cracked glass without the cracking.  I paired the birdie with an embossed panel of white core, textured cardstock.   Some simple sanding makes the embossing pop. Very easy and fun to do.


Here are all the images and sentiments included with the Birthday Birdie set:
