Tweet Birthday

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Ocean Colors". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

This is my second time using the Toucan Party stamp set, and I have to say I really love it. The toucans are such fun to color, and I think they look great in blues and greens. As this needed to be a birthday card and there was not a birthday sentiment in the set, I created a custom one using just the 'tweet', and the other words from a Stampin' Up set. 

I am also playing along with the Anything Goes challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Toucan Party (Newton's Nook), Endless Birthday Wishes (SU)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Bermuda Bay (SU), Green Apple (SSS)
Patterned Paper: Kitten Smitten (Doodlebug)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Tumbled Glass Distress Ink (Ranger)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Toucan Party Dies (Newton's Nook), Wonky Stitched Rectangles (My Favorite Things), Circles Framelits (Sizzix)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

Hi Sandy, Hope your summer was a good one. I can't believe it is Labor Day!
Love, love, love the colors in this card. I like the big spaces to color on the Toucans too. Also good for an anniversary card!
Hope to see you soon . . . dinner? class?

I think I love these toucans, too — at least the way you used them here! The colour-blocked background looks great with them.
