Cuddly Buddly Love Birds



I have a fun card using a Cuddly Buddly digital image today for our Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps Midweek Throwdown challenge, themed "Birds".  I colored the love birds with Copic markers R22, R24, R27, Y13, Y15, Y17, B12, B14, R81, R83, R85, cut it out with a Spellbinders circle then matted it with a Spellbinders pinking circle die.  After that I cut two more Spellbinders circles, layered them and added them.  

Cardstock colors are Via Vellum Basic Black, Astro Brights Galaxy Gold, Turquoise, Stampin' Up! Pixie Pink and Copic X Press It.  I used two Papertrey Ink dies, double ended banners and a ric rac die for the edge of the turquoise panel.  "Tweetheart" is computer generated, I needed something for my double ended banner.  I also used two new to me Darice embossing folders.  

Thanks for visiting my blog today -

I adore everything about this darling card! The bright colors, the dry embossing, the black borders, the image, and the sentiment! You always make me feel as if I stopped about three or four steps too soon on mine, lol.
