A groovy Hippie Chick birthday card

Groovy birthday card featuring From the Heart Hippie Chick Birdbrain digital stamp, by Paperesse.

This Hippie Chick Birdbrain digital stamp and sentiment form the focal point of this psychedelic birthday card.

The patterned paper is a no-brand type I picked up at a discount shop. It has the perfect early 70's feel to go with the stamp. I remember seeing these types of decorative patterns when I was a kid. I even had a headband like the chick here. I remember wearing that and a fringed vest my mom made me, thinking I looked really cool.

Embellishments are a peace charm, twine, and enamel dots. These peace charms have been languishing in my charm box a while now; I was glad to finally use one. Tying a charm with twine or ribbon on the side of a card is my favorite way to use them (another example of which is this Let It Snow Christmas card).
