A Little Birdie Told Me Birthday Card

Hello, Friends!  I’m having such fun creating with the pretty ribbons in this Country Holiday Collection.  They work so well for shabby chic creations that I just had to make this A Little Birdie Told Me Birthday Card.  It’s filled with all kinds of sweet surprises on the inside.

A Little Birdie Told Me Birthday Card

a-little-birdie-told-me-birhtday-card-by-kathy-clement-photo-4How shabbylicious is this?   I love the way the pink ribbons pull out the pink colors in the designer papers.  My ribbon border uses Brown Diamond Satin Ribbon topped with Wild Rose RRR Select Swiss Dots Grosgrain Ribbon.  Because these are such soft, pastel colors, the brown border serves to anchor the design.

The party is on the inside

What could be sweeter than these darling vintage images combined with beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Love bird things. The wee birdhouse is perfect but you would want to frame this, not try and put it in an envelope! Love your party on the inside of the cards!!!! Thanks for another treat to look at Kathy. Have a great Sunday.
    hugz from Victoria.

      Hi, Roberta! It’s an older collection from Webster’s Pages. I think it has been retired now, but you might be able to do a Google search and find it. It’s called Nature’s Storybook. Good luck! And thanks for the lovely comment!
