Fab Friday Challenge, FabFri09

I am on a ROLL, baby - three days in a row of challenges! (Wonder how long I can keep this up this blistering pace?) This card was made for the Fab Friday 09 challenge, which is this sketch:

As soon as I saw all the cute images in the Spring Sampler stamp set, I immediately thought of this card.  Well, not necessarily this layout, but I knew I had to use these images for a birthday card.

Okay, I can hear all the groans from here......sorry, I just had to be punny today.  It's Friday!  This did made me stretch a little out of my comfort zone.  It's a lot brighter, and a bit more simple than usual. The DSP colors were chosen to coordinate with the image colors, and the sun just had to be yellow, and the bird just had  to be blue (it is the blue bird of happiness, after all).  And this is a little bit of a hybrid card, too. The greeting was made in My Digital Studio, and printed with my printer.

Well, I'm off to fetch groceries. Hope you all in the frozen north don't get slammed too hard by the blizzard. And for you lucky demos at leadership in Orlando.......pbbbttt, I'm not speaking to you anymore! Well, until tomorrow, anyway.
