Birds Galore!

This little bird is another image that will be released today by Modern Sugar Blvd. It took me two hours to make this card!!! I looks very simple, but...I was trying to figure out how to use Photoshop to duplicate the bird image! I never did figure out how to "flip" the bird (hahaha) in Photoshop, so I did that in Paint because I've done it there before. I then figured out how to add the text, and did a little "play on words" for Happy Birthday. I ended up using this for DH's birthday this past Thursday. I would have felt just a little bit guilty buying a card!

I colored in all the little birds with colored pencils. I'm thinking I should print & color another to have the green bird on the bottom popped up for dimension. Check out what the rest of the design team have done with today's new images, and enter the challenge over on the MSB blog!

If anyone knows of some sites with easy Photoshop tutorials, please let me know!!

Happy crafting!

Sharon this card is really cute! I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager to flip my digital images ~ I've found it to be the easiest so far.

That little bird is so cute! I like how colorful it is too - very spring-y.
