Happy Birthday Birdie

I made this card for my BIL. Happy Birthday, Vince!

I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch #82 for my Happy Birthday Birdie card today. I always struggle with masculine cards, probably because I like to use ribbon, scallops and flowers a lot! I did sneak in a strip of polka dot ribbon on the card and instead of finishing it off with a bow or flower, I added a trio of buttons tied in twine.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
