Haiku My Heart Friday: Happy Day

For those of us not
celebrating a birthday,
It can be bird day.
A friend is celebrating a birthday today.  I made a card for her using a gelli plate design I had created several months ago and a small piece of lime green ribbon:
to which I added a playing card with a bird on it and (rather cleverly, in my humble opinion) inserted the above message on the inside.
I decided that before I sent off the card in the mail, I would make a copy of said bird.  Here is my finished sketch, to which I added watercolour:
I was quite pleased with the results of the painting and the card, I hope the recipient will get as much enjoyment from the card as I did from making it!

Haiku My Heart Fridays are hosted by Rebecca at recuerda_mi_corazon.
