Jackie had the Tim Holtz set of Crazy Birds that we just fell in love with, so I stamped a bunch of them to color later. This one is perfect for belated birthday cards. In fact, the facial expression is so cute, you almost want to be late on purpose!
I colored the bird with colored pencils, then drew the deflated balloon free hand, adding the string "attached" to his wing. The birthday hat is a Jolee sticker. Before mounting the image to the card, I die cut the scalloped circle around him, added a handwritten message and sponged the edges with green ink. After stamping the belated bd message inside, the card was on its way.
