My stamping buddy and I were in a little shop outside of town when we found this oh so great cartoon buzzard stamp and I just had to have it. I know a couple of people who will be getting this for their birthday. The  stamp comes with a ''happy birthday from the bluebird of happiness' sentiment which I have stamped on the inside. I have kept the card relatively free of embellishments as it is going to a male relative and as my husband once told me "we don't like a lot of frill"  :O)!

Paper: Stampin Up whisper white, basic black, gumball green, tangerine tango (for the pinwheel), summer sun
