Snowbird Birthday

Welcome back OCS fans! It's the first Thursday in February and yes, it's still winter...sigh........

Today I am sharing a card I made for my mother in laws 80th birthday. I think L'il Snowbird from High Hopes Stamps is the perfect image when you need something with a winter theme for life events after Christmas.


I chose to use some "brighter" colours to help beat some of the winter blues.  Some glitter gumdrops add some sparkle along with some bright pink paper from Doodlebug.  "Snow" embossing powder adds some texture and colour as well.
