B is for Belated

Whilst we were away on holiday  it was Brother-in-law, Gerald's birthday,
(on the 19th January) and whilst I hadn't forgotten his birthday, I forgot
to leave his card with sister Maggie!
So here's the belated card that I made for him - I am so pleased with this.
I am not very good at colouring in, and this is only the third time that I have used
the Stampin' Up Blendabilities pens, so I think I might get a bit better - must practice more!!

I used Old Olive and Soft Sky card stock to make the grass and sky, 
layered onto a White base card .
I stamped the image from the "From the Herd" stampset
onto Whisper White cardstock and then coloured the image in with Blendabilities,
then cut this out and stuck it onto the base card.
The clouds are punched using the Cupcake Builder Punch.
I then sketched the three birds in the sky...
and voila - the masterpiece was complete!
What do you reckon to it?
