Happy Birthday Anne-Marie

(I hope that the card has already arrived and been opened, otherwise this will be a big surprise for you *g*).

It was my friend Anne-Marie's birthday the other day, and so (late as always) I whipped this up the night before to get it in the post on the day so it would arrive only one day late. Rather than my usual effort of several days, if not weeks, late.

The layout was pretty much totally CASEd from this card posted on Splitcoast Stampers.

Four of the seven flowers were stamped separately and attached with dimensionals, as was the body of the bird (and boy, am I wishing I had a Pumpkin Pie marker - that beak was tricky to ink off the pad *g*) and the greeting. My Stamp-A-Ma-Jig came was invaluable for ensuring the flower stalks were evenly placed and the three flowers at the back were positioned correctly.

And the birthday greeting? One of the new "individual" stamps from the Summer Mini Catalogue - a very useful stamp to own, and see how beautifully it fits into the Wide Oval Punch? Love that!

Gorgeous artwork Chris!
LMK if your daughter would like some of the Mario characters, I'm pretty sure Cordelia can share the pattern! I just printed them on 120gsm card (you know, the cheap white card from Officeworks!).
My email address is on my blog, a link at the bottom left!
