sunshine and smiles

Hi ya - I am back in Australia and comfortably settled into my craft room for the winter!  Yesterday we went up to Colac to pick up Kouta our little pouch and he went absolutely ballistic when he saw me ... I was very surprised at his response to me ... after 4 weeks he must have missed me!
Anyway the month of May has several birthdays in my family and this is a birthday card for my sister in law ...

I have followed the sketch from Card Patterns #165, included a bird for CAS-ual Fridays and Paper Sundaes 'things with wings' and also included stitching (faux!) for AnnaBelle Stamps Blog.
materials - Bazzill apricot cardstock; Jillibean Soup 'apple cheddar soup' papers; Autumn Leaves bird stamp, Hero Arts 'sending smiles message' stamp set, Sassafras Lass 'stitched borders'; MFT branch with leaves and little open scalloped edge dies; Staz On timber brown ink, Color Box chestnut roan chalk; Stitched grossgrain brown; flowers; crystal brad; Carl corner punch.
Thanks for looking.
