Angry Birds Birthday card

One of my BFF's sons is about to celebrate his 14th birthday...gosh, it just doesn't seem possible.  All three love Angry Birds, so I am making each one a themed birthday card.  I found this one here
The base is a 5x6.5" white card with layers of decorative paper from Around the Block and Whisper White.  I stitched around the edges in a wonky curvy path.  The sentiment (from a Michael's dollar stamp set) is stamped on Whisper White and the notch punched with the 1 3/8" square punch.  I wrapped some Cherry Cobbler baker's twine around the end & secured with a little tape on the back before attaching it to the card.  The Angry Bird directions are on the link above.  I did have to make a few tweeks, since I did not have the bracket die or the five-petal flower, so I used the word windo punch from SU and the bow from the present of Cricut's Doodlecharms (set at 3").  I mounted the top beak with dimensionals, as well as the finished bird.  Thanks for looking!  April
