HEC Sweet 16


Today I made a card for Ted's HEC Sweet 16 .  Ted is having birthday #44 on April 20th and to celebrate, we were to make a card in mostly green and purple (Ted's favorite colors) and to use 4 of something on the card.  For my card, I used four panels each with Little Bitty Bird branches stamped on it.  I colored them with four different color pens and on the last panel, diecut a bird from green Bitty Dot paper and put a cute little party hat on him.  In my mind, that little bird is Ted celebrating his special day.  I embossed the green cardbase with the Pacific Vineyard impression plate that I think looks very much like the little branches in the Little Bitty Bird stamp set.  Don't you agree?  A double ended banner and sentiment from Enjoy the Ride and Birthday Bash Sentiments finish off my card.  I hope Ted get's lots of entries this month and I know we all wish him a very happy birthday!

Cathy, thank you for your kind comments. I was just checkiing out your blog and love the shading you did in last weeks challenge. I love red and that looked great. I still haven't tried that technique.
