Happy Birthday!!

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday so I thought I'd share the card I made for her with you.

I made a criss-cross Card and embellished the front with one of the layered chipboard birds a friend recently gave me.  My mother-in-law loves birds so I foresee using the birds my friend gave me on several cards for her.  I used a metallic pen for the faux stitching.  This gives a bit of shimmer as do the two flouishes.  The ribbon also has a bit of shimmer to it and the flower has touches of glitter.  The scalloped panel pulls out and is where my husband wrote our birthday message to her.

Cardstock:  Bazill, Recollections
Patterned Paper:  Prima (Madeline)
Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers (Celebrate Big!)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Embellishments/Tools:  flourishes (Prima, Recollections), ribbon (Ribbon Trends), Layered Chipboard Bird (K & Company), Spellbinders (Classic Ovals Large, Floral Ovals, Big Scalloped Border Petites), Sakura Gelly Roll Metallic pen, flower (Prima)

I like the shimmery ribbon very much. I also love when we venture into a different fold. The apricotish color is solid but very pretty. The bow, diecut and scallops all seem to be a perfect match. The bird looks quite lovely perched on that layer.
Thank you for joining us at Word Art Wednesday.
