Birthday Birdie

In my family there are always so many birthdays that I just cannot make too many. The good thing is that I do generally send them. This is a gate-fold card, I really like these because they are a little different from the normal cards.  The difficult part usually seems to be a way to get the card to stay closed. This time I found some little Magnets from Basic Grey, that worked great.

I made this card for a few challenges. First was for the "blast from the past" challenge on StampTV to make a gate-fold card. Then there is the color challenge of JUGS#42 to use green, navy, orange, and cream. Then there is the Copic Creation challenge to color a bird using Copics. Now I did research for the bird to see which birds have some orange and blue in them. This bird is a barn swallow! Isn't that cool? So there is the orange for the JUGS challenge!  


Recipe:
Stamps: Spring Mix from Gina K Designs
Paper: Pure luxury Vanilla and In the Navy
Special Paper: DCWV Latte
Other: Buttons, Copic Markers, Nestabilities, Copic Markers
