Sketch and Tic-Tac-Toe

Since I got home from holiday I've been mostly cleaning and washing clothes, but I've also made one card today. My card is inspired by the sketch over at "Seize the Birthday" and the tic tac toe challenge over at "The Paper Players".
I recently won some digis from Bugaboo, and this cute little bird was one of my picks - I just couldn't resist its eyes! It's been colored with Promarkers mostly in different shades of blue and orange to match my choice of papers. The image is fussy cut and is mounted on foam. The banner with the heat embossed birthday sentiment has been hand cut and distressed with blue ink. The star is a cut out from a DP that came free with a magazine, and I machine stitched with white thread around the edges.

I'm still trying to catch up with all of you since my return, but you've been such a crafty bunch so I need some more time to get around to visit you all:)

This card is for these challenges:
1) Seize The Birthday - Sketch #20
2) The Paper Players - Tic Tac Toe (Bird+Blue+Birthday)
3) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
