Birdie Birthday

I wanted to participate in Denise's challenge at Stamping Vacation this week. It seems like awhile since I entered her challenge on Monday's. This has been a very busy month and it isn't over yet. I have enjoyed sharing comments and emails with Denise. She has a very interesting blog, her posts keep you thinking, and I think I have mentioned her challenge was the first challenge I won.
These were kind of hard colors for me to work with, but I have wanted to use this little bird stamp for awhile and this is the card that came together. As I sit here posting and looking at the picture I should have punched holes around the scallops on the oval to tie it more together, but again I'm not the do over girl. I bet my birthday recipient will like it anyway.
