You're one cool chick!

Hi!  I found a bit of time during this holiday weekend to make a card.  Just one!
I'm playing along in the Paper Smooches Designer Draft Challenge.

 Here's the May sketch.

When I first looked at this sketch I thought of the sun.  That worked perfectly for the fun birthday card I wanted to make for one of my stamping friends.  I hope she likes it!

My friend RH is so much fun to spend time with and I think she is "one cool chick"!

I used some pretty blue glitter paper for the sky, to make that big yellow sun really pop.  The happy, little bird was paper pieced...the body, from solid color card stock and the wings from a floral patterned paper.  I colored the tiny legs, then gave the legs and wings a swipe of clear Wink of Stella.  The final touch was adding those 2 wiggly eyes.  I couldn't resist.  :)

Thanks for taking a look!

Supplies used ~
card stock: white (Recollections), gumball green, daffodil delight (SU), powder glitter paper (Recollections)
stamps: my peeps, boob tubes, sentiment sampler (Paper Smooches)
