Birthday Card for Maddy

Good Evening All My Blogging Buddies,

Tonight I made a birthday card for my niece Maddy. The background paper was made with shaving cream and food coloring. It's a really neat technique I learned from watching Youtube a few years ago. I wish I could remember who did the Youtube video :(
I used my Cricut to do the sentiment and gel pens to accent the bird. The cupcake was just a 3d sticker I had in my stash.


I entered this card in the Red Carpet Studio Challenge "The Birds" you can visit their Blog by clicking the following link.
