Friend's Birthday Card

 I realized today it is one of my life long friends birthday on Sunday. We lived next door to each other when babies and our mothers used to put us into the same pram while they had a coffee. So the rush was on. I know i have many birthday cards hanging about but wanted to personalize one.

I loved making my dove card a few days ago so out they came again and thought this time after yesterdays card I wanted a bright and cheery design so downloaded a very colourful background from PNGwing. Printed it out cut the doves from the background and white card. Printed the sentiment out ad then die cut the birds from the front panel. Placed over the background on the card base so would show through the negative space of the doves. I had cut the wings and tails off the white ones. Reason for this is for me to stick the coloured body directly to the background. Placed the white wings and tails over the background - this enables the coloured wings to remain 3D.

Thank you for popping in.
