Shabby Girl's Birthday Card for Little Birdie Crafts

Welcome to my creative space!

We've had an abundance of cloudy days here in Ohio this winter, but there is a bright spot that shines despite the dreary days and that is our sweet granddaughter, Avery. She celebrates her fourth birthday next month and I created this sweet card for her featuring the Little Birdie Crafts collection of papers and flowers along with some Shabby Chic flowers. The banner and cupcake design couldn't be more perfect for a birthday celebration and the Ornate Number 4 chipboard is perfect as well. I've also created a video tutorial sharing the techniques used to create this card. I hope you will find inspiration and learn some new techniques.

I hope you'll hop on over to the Little Birdie Crafts blog to view more close-up photos HERE.
