QKR Stampede Challenge #180 Birthday Cards

Hard to believe it's the last Friday of February already and time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede!  This week our challenge is Birthday Cards.  I chose image #9805 Thirty.  Our nephew will be 30 in a couple months and I thought this would be perfect for him!  I imported the image into Silhouette Studio, added Happy Birthday and "th", then printed it out.  I printed the image again on DP from The Paper Studio Glasses, Staches & Ties and cut it out to paper piece over the 30.  I colored in the beak, feet, and eyes with copics, added glossy accents to his eyes, and Vintage Photo distressing ink on all the edges.  Blue cs from Craft Smith blue paper pad.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see all the HAPPY cards my DT sisters have created and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!
