Happy Bird Day - Paper Smooches

Many roadrunners (my favorite bird) are seen running around our golf courses and communities of Buckeye, Arizona.  Having done many searches for an acrylic stamp set for a roadrunner, never to be found, I harrassed and sometimes became obnoxious in requesting from a local vendor to create a roadrunner appologies.  Thank you Kim, Owner of Paper Smooches, for being the first to create a baby roadrunner ... I'm in love.  Included with this "Baby Birds" stamp set is a Quail (another popular bird in Arizona). and other birds and sentiments.  

This card was designed for the Paper Smooches November Fall Challenge...using fall colors for a Birthday in Phoenix the only difference between for the Fall Season the cacti do not flower.  Wanted to make these babies feel at home in there element so in the confetti stitched background panel added a die cut cactus and pot from design paper.  My roadrunner and quail were stamped, colored, fussy-cut and then adhered in front of the cactus by 3D thin foam tape. Sentiment added.  Still wanted something in the upper r-h corner so stamped a couple balloons on vellum, colored, fussy-cut and adhered with glue.  

On the inside of the card I stamped in the upper and lower corners the same balloons, leaving room for another sentiment or note.
