CDAC Sketch Challenge #2 "Shelly's Images"

This card is for the Sketch challenge #2 over at CDAC. This cute little birds with the banner image was a freebie from Shelly Parker at "Shelly's Images". She has lots of cute images available here at if you'd like to go over and browse. The birds in this image were copied and resized several times so I could have a bunch of birds flying around and sitting on the banner. The birds were colored on PS Elements. The banner was sponged around the edges and the Happy Birthday was colored with glitter pens. The papers are all S.U. The gems are from stash. Flowers were made and shaped from S.U. punch. Ribbon is from stash. Fiskars border punch and S.U. scallopped border punch were used. All the birds and the banner were cut out and attached with dimensionals. I just couldn't resist putting a little bling on their wings!

This is the Sketch we were to use for this challenge along with Shelly's Image. Thanks to Shelly for the adorable image and thanks to Scrappy for this sketch!
