A Little Birdie Told Me

Good Morning, Bloggers! Are you ready for another Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images?! Today's featured image is this cute little "Birdie Banner." The little birdie is available at a discounted price, today only, in Shelly's Store!

My card layout follows the fun sketches at Sunday Sketch & Stamp and Peachy Keen Stamps. The image, Birdie Banner, by Shelly's Images, is colored with Promarkers. I've used these yummy digi papers by Stitchy Bear Stamps. The greyish blue cardstock panels are embossed with the Swiss Dots folder, using my Cuttlebug. The sheer pale blue ribbon is from my stash. I used my Crop A Dile Big Bite to punch a hole in each end of the Birdie Banner, and threaded the ribbon through each end. The sentiment, Friend to Friend, is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, by Stampin Up, and is punched with Stampin Up Punches. I've mounted the sentiment with foam tape, for 3D effect and Dimension.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
