Cowboy Birdie Card

It's getting close to Father's Day and I've been working on ideas for my dad. This Cowboy Birdie Card is a strong possibility. I love the adorable yellow bird image by Doodle Pantry, it just makes me smile. When creating this card I used the manliest colors in my stash that coordinated with the pre-colored image. The patterned paper is from the Smarty Pants collection by Simple Stories. I used Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green Stampin' Up! cardstock as accent colors. The small banners were punched using the Stampin' Up! banner punch (133519) and I hand cut the sentiment banner. The final touch was three pewter brads. I decided not to use Happy Father's Day on the front of the card because if I don't use it for that occasion it will fit many others throughout the year. Well partner I'd say this here card is pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself. Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for stopping by!
