Birthday Birdies

I was very lucky recently and won a lovely candy package from Jacque - so I couldn't wait to have a play with this pretty border die (sorry don't know the make)

This flock of goofy seagulls has to be one of my favourite stamps - and so easy to colour too ... just a touch of black on their wings and then the lightest hint of blue for a wee bit of shading.
I dipped into my stash for my gold peel off stickers - it was really just to hide the edge of my diecut, but I love how it turned out.
'Happy' diecut from Simon Says Stamp.
I also used some white chalk to add in a cloud effect to my plain blue DP.


  1. Oh those seagulls are just such fun, Lynne! They are all such characters! I love the subtle cloud effects on your blue paper, too!!
