Bye Bye Birdie Challenge #151

I am so excited to post my very first Design Team project!  FCCB's "Bye Bye Birdie" is such a fun challenge!  I love all the different bird images that the Cricut carts have and the fun sentiments that go along with them from so many stamp sets out there, I wish I could have them all.  Anyway, my little bird is cut from the Home Decor cart and I cut him out with some fun glitter paper.  The patterned paper is from DCWV Pocket Full of Posies stack and it is fun and glittery too.  I used Edgeabilities Classic Scallop for the top border and for the sentiment corners I used Fiskars Corner Punch "Sea Pearls".  The sentiment itself is by Studio 112 that I picked up from Joann's in the $1 bin.  The ribbon I got from Michael's out of a $1 bin too.  Love the $1 bins!  I used Wisteria ColorBox Chalk Ink to ink around the edges of the tag and ColorBox Eggplant Pigment Ink for the sentiment.  This was a fun card to make and now I need to find out some fun juicy gossip so I can send this card out :)
