Your Birthday *Heartfelt Creations*

At first, I thought this was done.
I couldn't stop staring at all that white space. Don't get me wrong. I love white space! But this is awkward.

So, I filled it in with some birds.
I was inspired by this sketch by Iwona. Papers are from Lost and Found Two "Sunshine" by My Mind's Eye.

I love the little banner trend! I colored everything with Prismacolor pencils.

Flowers are an assortment of daisies and little posies. Most were stamped on white cardstock and then Glimmer Misted.

These birds are from the Brookside Manor PreCut Set.

Thanks for stopping by!
Be sure to stop by the HC Blog for more inspiration from the Design Team.
