Happy Birthday Bird

Hi all, I was really late home from choir tonight, Adrian had put our granddaughter to bed for me, so she was sound asleep when I walked in at 11 p.m. He was in bed but still awake and I thought I'd better hurry up and make this card, I knew I wanted to use this DP which is the flip side of the KaiserCraft paper I used on yesterday's card. I used a chocolate brown cardstock for the basecard, layered the DP over it and then stamped the bird from SU set Punch Potpourri, I stamped it twice so I could cut the wing out of the same pattern, it was inked in Close to Cocoa and then choc chip ink sponged around the edges of the bird and wing. The sentiment was stamped and sponged with Choc Chip ink and comes from SU set Perfect Punches. I added a small brown pearl for the bird's eye.
I would like to enter this into;
