A Little Birdie Told Me

Today's card is a birthday creation made from a stamp I have had for quite a while but have never used. Starting out with white cardstock, a bright yellow layer is added, then a white layer, then a layer that I hope looks like striped wallpaper. If you put on your "make believe" hat, you can look out the window to an outside scene of two birds sitting on a telephone wire, and the caption below it says, "A little birdie told me..." The stamps are from Stampin' Up. To resemble a sky, I dabbed light blue ink on the white background and colored the birds with a marker. The window (Poppy Stamps Small Madison Window) is elevated from the bird background with pop dots. A small pink ribbon and bow are added on the right.

Closeup of the window:

On the inside of the card, the sentiment continues, "It's your birthday!"

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT

So delighted you shared your artwork with us at Word Art Wednesday. Want to leave you with a verse coming from 1 John 5:4 which says, "For everyone born of God overcomes the world.
