Meet Joey...

Made this card for my sons girlfriends mum for her 50th Birthday...she has asked for a budgie and all the kit and kaboodle to go with it for her birthday...strange request but she birdie sat for her sister and decided she wanted one of her own to speak to...the budgie chick is not here yet so she has that to look forward to...her hubby says it will give his ears a rest when it arrives :-/...anyways I'm sure she will enjoy his present much more just now as he took her off on a two week holiday to Tenerife for some much needed sun lucky her...
Anyways enough of my waffling and on to my card....



The cute little bird is Sweet Tweets from Pink Petticoat  and was paper pieced with papers also from Pink Petticoat. They are the Little Polka Dots papers and can be found here.
I love all of the pink petticoat range and is always worth a look, I love the simplicity of Liz's images and what she does with them is amazing...
I cut the bird cage, 50 today and flourishes from my craft robo...the bird cage and swing were freebie cutting files from Birds Cards...a great source of inspiration and freebies, grab a coffee and pop over to have a look though all her fantastic files...

The ribbon was a in a load of candy that I won from the lovely Steph a couple of years ago and think its from American Crafts...I think it matches perfectly...

The cabochon flowers were from ebay and I love them...think they maybe one of my favourite things just now!!
