Angry Bird Birthday Card!

Happy Birthday goes out to my wonderful son Adam who turns 12 tomorrow! Adam just loves Angry Birds and when I saw this great card on Pinterest, I knew just what to make for him. Imagine my delight when I found it included this great video by Dawns Stamping Studio. Thank you Dawn for such awesome instructions! I had to improvise a little as I didn't have all the same products, but I'm pleased with the result.
Adam, sweetie, I wish you a day filled with sunshine, love and laughter!
