Gingersnap Creations- GC44- Random Redhead Challenge

Well Gingersnap is 1 year old. So of course we all need to celebrate. I have made this card for the challenge. It is my first easel card, (I know I must be the only person on the crafting planet not to have made one of these before now) and I am giving it to my son who is 15 today. Boys cards can be so difficult to make sometimes. I have used some of my new Di's, bundled sage, forest moss and a little pumice stone, to colour the background. I overstamped in the same colours with the Stampers Anonymous swirl and made a little collage type background with the other stamps from the set. I re-stamped the gorgeous birdie and stuck him on with some silicone glue. The paper is some old stuff from my stash which was a pinky-beige colour but I got at it with the trusted inks and adjusted it.
