A little birdy told me it's your birthday!

Here is a birthday card I made for a male using my new Debbi Moore CD Shabby Chic Garden CD.  I went for a colour scheme of turquoise and kraft and use a design sheet, backing papers and personalised insert from the CD.  The card was finished off with some garden string tied in a bow and die-cut birds and bird house inked with Tim Holtz's Brushed Corduroy distress ink.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sugar Creek Hollow - Something new (new CD)
A Gem of a Challenge - Something new (new CD)

oooh I like this card. Great image and I like your color palette for this one. I always find it difficult to make masculine cards. You did a great job on this one.
