This is a birthday card for my DH Denny, who appreciates and surrounds himself and our lives with nature, including birds and plants of all kinds. I am also including this card in notimetostamps blog challenge ssnotime71 to use a "Modern" look to a card. I think silhouette stamp images, punches and dimensionals with added simplicity are a more modern look. The bird is EB, cut out and on dimensionals. The sentiment is also on dimensional as are a couple of the flowers. I love cutting out images with my awesome SU papersnips.....a must!!!
Enjoy and think spring :-)

Such a neat card. Denny will love it, I love the blue and the brown together. The cutouts add such nice detail and the balance is great. Now I need to add the large oval to my 'list to get'. LOL, you are not a good influence. gf,,, TFS

Wonderful card, Nancy! The color combination is fantastic and you know how much I love the bird! The added dimensional flowers and clever sentiment tag really make it special! Love the ribbon and layered wide oval! Happy birthday, Denny!
