Shabby Tea Room #53

Happy Anniversary to the Shabby Tea Room, which is having a Birthday Bash this week with a Birthday/Celebration theme.  My card is anything but shabby, but it does use some banners and lots of happy and I think it qualifies for the theme:


I used lots of new stamps, and did some paper-piecing using Cosmo Cricket dps. I wanted to use some sort of banner and decided to bring in this cute tree and birds to hang it on.

supplies: white cardstock, blue card base, kraft, green, pink and blue scraps for piecing, Cosmo Cricket scraps for banners, Hero Arts K5483 Tree Trunk, CL493 Life Life (sentiment), CL475 Friendly Flags (banners), CL439 Kiss from the Sun (sun), deNami notes stamp, tumbled glass distress ink for shading of sky

Also entering this into Hero Arts monthly challenge, which includes Birthday cards.
