Bermuda Bay Birthday

Thursday is my grandma's birthday and this is the card I made for her :) I was browsing SCS for a layout and came across this card and decided to base my card off her layout. I've had the library clips for a while now but anytime I tried to use them I wasn't happy, so when I clipped it onto this card, I was trilled to see that I liked how it looked!

Stamps: Fun and Fast Notes, Crazy for Cupcakes
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: SU Markers, Blender Pen, 1 3/8, 1 1/2 and Scalloped Circle Punches, Large Oval and Scalloped Oval Punch, Scalloped Edge Punch, White Gel Pen, Bermuda Bay Ribbon, Library Clips, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Dimentionals

1. Score an 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Bermuda Bay at 4 1/4 and fold on score line.
2. Stamp bird from Fun and Fast notes onto Whisper White twice and watercolor using SU Markers and blender pens.
3. Punch one of the birds out with the 1 3/8 circle punch--you will cut off part of the flower.
4. On the other image, cut out the bird and flower. Adhere to punched out image using dimentionals for the bird and adhesive for the flower.
5. Adhere entire image to a 1 1/2 circle punched from Basic Black. Set aside.
6. Paper pierce a border around a 4 x 3 piece of Whisper White.
7. Punch the scallop border along a 4 x 2 piece of Basic Black using the Scalloped Edge Punch and "dot" a white gel pen on each scallop. Dry fit onto card base and then adhere together so that there is a 1 inch margin of Bermuda Bay at the top. Do not adhere to card base yet.
8. Wrap ribbon around and adhere in back. Take another strip of ribbon and tie it around the ribbon to form the bow. Adhere to card base.
9. Stamp sentiment from Crazy for Cupcakes onto Bermuda Bay and punch out using Large Oval. Adhere to a Basic Black punched Scalloped Oval. Adhere above ribbon using dimentionals.
10. Adhere bird image to card base using dimentionals (doubling them for extra pop).
11. Clip the library clip onto the side.
12. The inside contains a 4x4 piece of Basic Black and a 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 Whisper White matted in the middle.
