Happy Birthday Randy!

Mornin' hens!  
This birthday card is for my BIL Randy. Not to worry, Randy has a GREAT sense of humor.  Wouldn't do for anyone I make a card for not to have one, right? Bwah-ha-ha-ha! 
I was pretty impressed with how my paper piecing turned out on this card.  The digital image is from Squigglefly and I've been wanting to use it for awhile now but couldn't  think of what it should say.  Any then it just hit me!  Duh!  Soooo, I printed the digital image onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and then again onto both the striped and diamond DP.  I cut small strips of white CS and made baseboards where the two DP's met.  I added a little shading to the DP and matted it to some white CS using my Perfect Layers tool and then stitched around the edges.  I printed the sentiment and then folded it to resemble a banner and popped it up with a few dimensionals.  To finish, I added some lime green Baker's twine and a button on top.  Can't wait for him to get this one!  Love it!
Hope you hens have a great Monday! {{{hen hugs}}}
