Happy Bird-day!

I really needed something to brighten up the dull and windy day here in Pembrokeshire and knew that NitWits would be able to help.  I have some of their designs on a CD-Rom that came with 'Complete Cardmaking' magazine and chose a few bright and breezy images from their 'One Birdie Lane' collection.  I used the sketch from the CD Sunday Challenge blog to make this lovely card.

The base card is Kraft (what did I do before I discovered this?!).  The toppers, backing paper and sentiment are from the CD-Rom, and the ribbon/Candy are from stash.  I coloured the ribbon and Candy with a Copic marker pen.
