Happy bird-day dt piece for anything goes challenge

It is challenge time again at anything goes and the challenge this time is so far put of my comfort zone...it is polka dots and then birthday..so here is my piece...

I love dots but the birthday part put a tricky spin for me..not that i don't like birthdays , just do not usually put this on the front of cards...am i weird?!
Started by creating an inky background using dylusions sprays and stencils and using Dyans fab faux bleaching technique.
I added a stamped wire for mr birdie to sit on and as it is birthday time gave him a fetching party hat, with dots! Mr birdie was inked using black soot DI.
The sentiment is computer generated and the banner is made from more dylusions stamps , cut out and highlighted with White gel ink pen.
Please pop over here and see the fab pieces that my team mates have created and for all things crafty visit craftden.

I am entering this for the following challenges :
