Happy Birthday to my baby girl who is 26 today!  I always struggle with making her cards.  She's not a girly girl and I've already done cards with many of her interests.  I thought about a Mario card and I still may do that one in the future.  I ended up deciding on an Angry Birds card as she has been playing it a lot after finding it recently.  So, of course, that meant I would be using Punch Art for this one.  I found a picture online (see below the card) and used it as my inspiration.  I did have to move the birds around to fit them all on the card, but otherwise, they are pretty close to the picture.

The sentiments I used were from the fun Smarty Pants stamp set for the front and On Your Birthday set for the inside.  These have been two of my favorite sentiment sets and I am so sad that they are retiring at the end of the month - especially Smarty Pants!  Be sure to get them before they go!  Here is the inside of the card:

This card was definitely a labor of love!  There was a lot of hand-cutting in this one to shape the beaks especially.  They all started with one petal of the 5-Petal Punch and were then cut and shaped.  This punch and several others are retiring.  Don't miss out on them!  As a punch art enthusiast, I am a firm believer in needing EVERY punch!  LOL.  Most of the other punching was just done on the edge and around as most of my punch art.  Enjoy!
