We all hope you have the best birthday ever, Kelley! So to start  you on your way, the Breadsticks put this little hop together for you.

I’m using images from  ODBD’s Sing to the Lord set. The bird, sentiment and one extra flower were all stamped in dk red. I used Prismacolor pencils to add some color and before you start wondering, I have no idea what kind of sparrow this is supposed to be.  I just colored him to go with my dp, lol. Oval Nesties and the out of the box Nestie technique was used for the bird image. Graduated sizes of ovals were used for the additional layers (I used both the Large Petite ovals and the Small Petite ovals to get these sizes) and I layered them offset toward the top of the ovals. All the ovals are backed with some thin chipboard to give them added dimension. A little soft sand ink was sponged around the edges of the image oval.

On the soft yellowish print layer, I added some doodling with a burgundy Micron pen. On the burgundy band, I used a branch border folder to emboss it. The sentiment was cut out of the box as well and attached to a burgundy layer.
