I am an brainless idiot - I have a box full of thing I collect - (incase they might be used) but were packet away ready for me to move. I didn't the heart to start searching and repacking thing again so I was a but stuck as to what to use for the this challenge and wish I chosen something else!!!
Whilst I sent to feed the birds I sudden had let my brain click into gear - this being the result of my card.
As you can see I used my 'Bird Seed' - I've stuck some at the base of the image and added a little packet attached to vellum - now I need a Budgie with a Birthday to send it to!!! 
The image is called 'Bird-day Treat' which I coloured with Copics.

Heather so cute. That corner treatment has always been one of my favorites. The paper is delightful and your image is just so sweet. Fantastic idea to put some of the extra seeds at the bottom of the card. Fun card. Enjoy the week.

Great idea to use that little packet of seeds on this card! It's perfect with the image! I think we all tuck away those little treasures and then they're not at hand when we want to use them! I usually forget where I've stashed my special finds ;)
Cute card!
