Happy Birthday

Challenges

Cupcake Craft (86) - Childhood Memories
A Spoonful Of Sugar (99) - Sketch
Creative Card Crew (48) - Happy Birthday
Crafty Creations (63) - 1 Design Paper/1 Image/1 Embellishment
Whiff Of Joy (75) - Green/Yellow/Other (Brown)

My childhood memory is of my father keeping budgies in an avery when I was small. Following the great sketch and using the colour combo, my other colour being brown, I covered the card with design paper. The other layers are just plain cardstock with one piece stamped with swirls. The image has been coloured with pencils and chalk and layered onto the same design paper. My one embellishment is a button.
