The Birdies Fly (Bird Birthday Invitations)

Our youngest bird is turning 5. 
I really can't believe it's come to this.
But, I guess if we must, then we will celebrate in style.
This year's choice is birds.
We'll be setting up a table spread with some beautiful bird ideas, but for now, we're making invitations.
With a mix of old-fashioned flowers and simple modern lines, 
I present,
the bird birthday invitation.

These are a total of 4 layers of paper glued together. The information is printed on white card stock. Then comes a layer of flowered craft paper, a solid blue card stock and then the simple bird shape witha  small triangle stuck in between for the beak. 
I was able to lift the bottom of the bird before the glue dried and draw the simple stick legs.
Then it was just a matter of dotting the eye.
Each invitation is a bit different.
Hopefully all the little birds will have a blast at the party to come.
Happy crafting!
