3 Little Bird Cards

I have a box of thank you notes (Hallmark) that has been sitting around for awhile not getting used. Since I started making my own cards I just haven't needed to use them. I thought it might be fun to play:
I have nothing against owls, I rather like them, but if I was going to make changes the owl had to go. I cut this fun flower carrying bird off 3 Birds on Parade and layered him on top of a circle I cut with my Creative Memories cutting system, trimming the top off once I had it adhered onto the card base. 
I put a simple yellow layer on the inside (even thought they were already blank) and choose 3 fun sentiments for the front. 
Fluttering by to say hi from My Pink Stamper: Buggy Punnies
Whimsy is essential from K. Andrew Designs: Positive Thoughts
Just a Little Pick-Me Up from Pink By Design: Breast Wishes
Now I have 3 cards to use for other reasons and I have more of the owls if needed. Just a fun project for those cards you have sitting around not getting used, or maybe need a face lift!  Have a wonderful Saturday!
