A Time Out Birthday

Good morning everyone!
I took a break (my Time Out) from Valentine card making and shifted to making some birthday cards this morning for the current 

Time Out
I did some spongeing with the hearts (SU Bermuda Bay sponged through an acetate stencil that I made with a SSS die) on my rectangular panel and "winked" them for some sparkle IRL.  I used patterned papers for my background and did some die cutting to look like streamers with one of the W&W Goldie Trim dies.  My birdie is MB, cut once from the polka dotted paper and layered onto another cut from coaster board.  The heart stamp is from PTI Heart Prints and white embossed.  The sentiment is also W&W from the Big, the Bold and the Happy stamp set.

and Seize the Birthday  Anything Goes challenge.  Below is a close up of the WOS, but it barely shows on the photo.
Anyway...another birthday card later to post.  
Thanks for stopping by!
