Birthday Card with Chipboard Bird

This card is for a friend who turns 40 this month.  I've used dies from the Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle set - the largest one is used to make the card base. I used kraft paper and distressed the edges with Walnut Distress Ink. A smaller die is used to make the brown inner frame, which is placed upon a honeycomb embossed paper sprayed with a peach colored glimmer mist - it gives a bronze shimmer finish on brown papers.
The music notes paper is from Minnehjørnet. I added a cardboard die cut frame from a set from Ikea, and the bird is a chipboard sticker from Basic Grey. The hand cut banner has a heat embossed birthday greeting. The number is made with die cuts and I added a bow  with a golden heart charm from Kort&Godt.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - Anything Goes (2nd entry)
2) Eclectic Ellapu - Anything with Wings
3) Happy Campers - Use Metal
4) Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog - Anything with a B (Bird)
5) Crafty Calendar - Things with Wings
6) Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge - #126 - The Same Letter (Bird+Banner+Bow)
