"The Blue Bird of Happiness"

 A closer look!
 The image!
 One more look!
 The inside of my card!
I recently needed to make a dreaded "guy" card for a friend at church. If you follow my blog you know that I struggle with 'guy' cards. But, I found this fun stamp from "Art Impressions". I love this fun stamp and it makes a quick birthday card for those 'guys' you need a birthday wish for.  I used a dictionary print  DP that was in my stash and added a pretty rusty card stock. I cut both the image and the sentiment with a MB stitched die. A bit of scrap paper that is tore along the bottom edge and some brown rhinestones finished off my card. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: The Bird of Paridise
One fine day as I was a-walkin' down the street
Spied a beggar man with rags upon his feet
Took a penny from my pocket
In his tin cup I did drop it
I heard him say as I made my retreat
"May the bird of paradise fly up your nose"
"May an elephant caress you with his toes"
"May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose"
"May the bird of paradise fly up your nose"

I've seen this image before and love it now that I see it on your card. I not only struggle with guy cards, but struggle making a guy card for my husband to send to some one..woo...that's double tough!
