Smile its your birthday

I always want to add 'laugh this is your present' after that sentiment, maybe I've read too many unfunny shop bought cards!

I'm entering it into the following challenges who, would you believe, all have the theme 'things with wings' (the chick on top of the prezzies) Fab & Funky Challenges, Charisma Cardz, Love to Create and, Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 'less is more' and if I'm not too late into One stop Craft Challenge 'bake a cake' (cupcake the chicks holding).

Stamp: Popcorn the bear 'Party Time' (coloured with Copics)
Papers: DCWV 'Citrus Stack'
Punch: Martha Stewart Doily punch
Dies: Nesties oval and scalloped oval
Ribbon and gems from stash

Thanks for looking x
