Angry Birds Birthday Card

How can my nephew be six?!?  Yesterday was his actual birthday, but we celebrated last weekend with an Angry Birds birthday party.  Here's the card that I made for him.
 I didn't have a pattern, but I looked at several different Angry Bird images.  I used my circle and oval cutter plus my 1-1/4" circle punch (for the whites of his eyes), my small circle punch for the black eyes, and my 2" scalloped circle punch to make the "feathers" for his tail.  The other pieces were cut from cardstock.  It was  just a little trial and error but super fun to make!  I used CTMH White Daisy, Black, Holiday Red (retired), and Sunny Yellow (retired) cardstock.
 Here's his card attached to his present.  I decided that the card itself was enough embellishment for the package.  Boys don't need bows, right?  Especially six-year-olds who are going to rip the paper right off to get to what's inside!  (Funny story: I couldn't find the regular tape so I used scrapbook tape.  That makes opening a gift very difficult since that stuff holds TIGHT!)
Here's my sister and her sweet family.  I love these guys so much!  Happy birthday, Doodle Bug!

Great job on the card, and it makes a perfect "bow" for the gift!
