Getting Older

I combined ideas from two cards I saw to make this , and I'm super happy with how it turned out. I think it's my fave for right now, lol! I'll have to make another to look at because this one is going in the mail tomorrow for someone who's celebrating the big 4-0 milestone.
The branch and bird are from a new set in the SU Holiday Mini called Season of Friendship. I cut off a branch because the whole tree is quite large! I used the Simple Alphabet from PTI for the sentiment, which reads: getting older is for the BIRDS! I think the rest of the card is self-explanatory, but don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - Season of Friendship, Simple Alpha
paper - RHred patterns dsp, baja breeze, ww, kraft
ink - chocolate, olive, RHred
acc - oval nesties, choc gg, in color buttons, white crochet thread, dimensionals
