Birthday Suit Birdbrain

Hiya! it's that time of the week again... mid-week inspiration for From The Heart Stamps.
This week i'm using Birthday Suit Birdbrain...

I really wanted to incorporate this weeks sketch challenge along with the twist too, which is to use scraps & washi tape. Here's the sketch for reference...
Now, I wanted to use my leopard print paper tape (by Forever In Time), so I chose this particular Birdbrain because the spots on its shell could be altered to a leopard print design using my promarkers.
I layered the image onto a piece of printed cardstock from a digital pack (BoBunny 'Roughin It') I'd used a part of the same design a month ago when I made a card using May's SOTM and I wanted to use up the other part which had been left after that make.
Then put this on top of the leopard print tape which had been stuck to the card base with a piece of dark woodgrain paper from MME's Stella & Rose 'Mabel' paper pad.
I've not added a sentiment to the outside of this card, choosing instead to leave room beneath the image to add the recipients name when the time comes to give the card. I have however, added a sentiment inside, one of SEVEN bonus sentiments you get for free when you buy this image.
I used 'Don't forget to wear your birthday suit (But remember to check it for cracks first)' lol

    1. So sorry Cely, I haven't had any internet service all morning so my blog hop post was late (I forgot to schedule it yesterday). This card isn't actually part of the hop, but I try to add humour to most of my cards when I can so can see how you may think that it was. Thank you for your kind comment
