Gate Fold Birthday

This gate fold birthday card was made using my favorite digi image by Beccy Muir, the shabby chic birdhouse.  I popped the image and punched a hole so you could see the tiny bird inside.  The sentiment stamp is by CTMH and was heat embossed so it shows up well on the DP.  I colored the image with markers and did a little sponging around it.

I am entering this card in the following:
Beccy's Place July Challenge - use a Beccy's Place image
Sparkle n Sprinkle July Challenge - use glitter, flocking or embossing powder
The Paper Shelter Challenge #166 - Birthday card with sentiment
The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Happy Birthday

Die Cut Divas Challenge - Button or bow
The Cupboard Trilogy Challenge #24 - Birthday
Love to Create Challenge #123 - Fussy and Fancy or Clean and Layered
My Craft Spot Challenge #143 - Birthday

The digi is also available from Sparkle n Sprinkle as an individual stamp or in a set as well as a cutting file and scrapbook pages.
