Happy Birthday Robyn!

Today is My Pink Stamper, Robyn's, Birthday! I have been a follower of hers after a couple months of owning my Cricut and wanted to see what else I could do with it.  She has taught me so much and inspired me without ever meeting me.  I wish you all the best and much success!

She is having a challenge and giveaway in honor of her birthday to make a Birthday card and post it to her blog.  I want to participate even though I own one of the cartridges she is giving away already. I just want to celebrate with her. Here is my card:
Recipe: I used whisper white cs from Stampin Up for the base. It is actually a portrait cut (I cut it the long way so that the width is 4.25 and the length is 5.5) and then I turned it on its side so it opens to the right. I hope that made sense, lol. The background paper is from DCWV Christmas stack; it has a cloud like pattern with blue dots. It is really pretty in real life. I cut the rainbow at 2.75", the bird at 2.5" and the clouds at 0.75" (2) and one at 1". All cuts are from Simply Charmed cartridge. I inked around the edges of all the clouds with blue ink and used stardust stickles to outline the clouds as well. I also used yellow stickles on the yellow stripe in the rainbow and more stardust on the accent in the bird. It is really pretty in real life. The bird is popped up and everything else is glued down. The stamp is from a Fiskars Birthday sentiments stamp set.

I really like this card. I wish the picture did it more justice. Happy Birthday Robyn! (By the way, did you notice it is a bird for a woman named Robyn?) LOL!! Have a great day and thank you for visiting and leaving a comment! I really appreciate it!
