Pilin' on the Folds & Birds

The theme this month at Pile It On is Fancy Folds. Our mid-month optional bonus theme is Put a Bird on It. The only really rule is to be inspired by more than one papercrafting challenge. We're sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.

I made a cascading card featuring Birthday Bird 04 by Bugaboo Stamps. I colored the image with Copic markers & cut it out with deckle scissors.

The sentiments Happy Birthday/Feliz Cumple & A little bird told me that today is your birthday/Me dijo un pajarito que hoy cumples años are from Dilo en Español Stamps. The latter is held in place with a wood veneer bird that I heat embossed in yellow.

The balloons were cut with Elizabeth Craft dies, and I tied little bits of blue satin ribbon to them.
