Sad Little Birthday Candle Bird Brain

Second post for the day ... scroll down to see more :)

This is such a sad little bird, but I just adore him.  Although I bought a few images at FromTheHeart stamps, I still keep going back to this Birthday Candle Bird Brain.  I have a few of them printed out with the different sayings, and this little guy is so dog-gone cute!  This time he is bummed ... see the last photo to find out why.  :D lol

I used the sketch at FromTheHeart this week too and made my fold a little different with a flap at the top for the scalloped part.  Would make a great gift card holder this way, I thought.  I will just make a small slit on the inside and tuck it in if I decide to do that.  For now, it's in my stash.  :)

Here's the sketch if you would like to play along.  Create a little something, and then be sure to click on the link above to add your blog post to their Linky page.

Card Deets:  Birthday Candle Bird Brain from FromTheHeart digital stamp,
baker's twine, Happy Birthday charm, square brads in bright jewel colors
CS:  SU textured gable green and BG Lime Rickey and Lemonade paper packs
Tools:  Spellbinders' Labels One dies, Copic markers, MS paper punch

Although I didn't quite get the pearlescent brad's shimmer in my photograph, I am also hoping this qualifies for the Simon Says Challenge this Week - Anything Goes with Pearls

Also added to Card Mania's challenge to Use a Sentiment

Inky Hugs,

Aren't these birdbrains addictive? They are just so stinking cute and hilarious -- love the sentiment you chose! Great color combo, too; bright and cheery, even if birthdays are quite as cheery as they used to be!!
