Happy Birthday Lil' Birdie

I really enjoy all the supplies that come out for Valentine's Day, everything is so cutesie. Not that red and pinks are my favorite colors because there not. But I had the motivation to sit down and color and I could not resist this new image from Tiddly Inks Wryn - New Nest.

I've been playing around coloring hair with my copics and I'm finding blonde is a challenge to color but I do like the end result for Wryn.

I used for the first time a sketch from the Clean and Simple Stamping Blog #174.

I then paper pierced the top portion of the card, and pop dotted it off of the base (I just love the effect it gives). I also pop dotted the main image that was cut from the largest label one spellbinders die. Gave the bottom designer paper a scalloped bordered edge and sewed the mini tag verse and button onto the ribbon with metallic thread.

My colors where chosen from the Color Throwdown Challenge for last week as well.
