For the Love Birds

Hey y'all! It's been awhile since I've blogged, but I am happy to say that I am finally finished with my class I've been taking...thank God for that! Now, I can focus on finishing the house and getting everything ready for the wedding. It is sneaking up on me so fast! I'm really excited, but I also feel just a bit overwhelmed with everything to do before the big day. Oh yeah, and I can also focus on making more cards and doing more crafty things now! :) Speaking of that, I can play in more challenges, too! This week's There She Goes Challenge was a sketch one, and I thought it looked like a fun sketch, so I am playing along.

This card is for a friend of mine who just celebrated her one-year anniversary! Happy Anniversary, Cyndi and Eric! :) I used this cute set by There She Goes called Love Birds. I love it because it's perfect for Valentine's, wedding, and anniversary cards! I also used my March 2010 Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions. I thought the earthy colors in this patterned paper by Crate Paper reminded me of birds and nature.

I stamped my image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers. Then, I cut it out with Nestabilities and layered it on the scallop circle. I embossed the Kraft background with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder. My kids at school say I must love polka dots because I have so many polka dot things in my room! I'll admit it...I do love polka dots!

I punched the brown trim with the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch and finished this card off with some rhinestones, two layered bows, and a leaf pin. I just love using these stick pins on my card!
