This crazy little bird from Paper Smooches Stamps' {BIRTHDAY BUDDIES} is one of my favorite go-to stamps for birthday cards.  He colors up so adorably and can be easily worked into a masculine or feminine theme.  I tend to use him most for simple, CAS cards for dudes. :)

I stamped him onto watercolor paper watercolored him with Distress Ink. I added some highlights with a white ink gel pen and coated the balloon in Stardust Stickles.  I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch two small, half-circle holes in the bottom of the die cut piece to create a great spot to hold the wrapped twine so it doesn't slide off the panel.

I'm linking him up to the following awesome challenges:
