Birds flyin' high...

... you know how I feel...
OK, let's continue. This is the second card for my friend's Dad (see: previous post).
This time the idea was to decorate the '65' number, which I generated in MS Word. I made the frame using my 'blending tool' (a piece of kitchen sponge LOL) and distressing ink. 
The '5' has two birds on it: one on a twig and one sitting in the nest. The 'egg' is a tiny pom-pom. There are also three buttons, as three is a mythical (magical) number: you know: Holy Trinity, Three Musketeers, three wishes for the Golden Fish... LOL
The '6' has one bird on it, and there are some feathers and a twine.
The birds are being cut from the scrapbook sheet I bought lately via internet. They were too pale, I had to doodle the lines with a brown pen. I popped them out a little with a 3D tape. I used the twine to wrap the number and tie the feathers (those white traces is a wet glue, it goes transparent when dry, I was in a hurry while making those pics).
The flower is made of two, and they come from some disassembled decoration. They were originally pale-pink, but I inked every second petal with distressing ink.
