Have a Tweet Day

Hello, everyone.  Happy Saturday - hope you are enjoying it!  Today I made a "just because" card - I really wanted to play along in Savvy Handmade Cards' Feather Photo Inspiration challenge.  I had a different card made, but I didn't think it was good enough LOL so I made another one - I like how this one turned out much better.  The sweet bird image and sentiment are from Doodle Pantry and the quilted heart is a freebie from Pattie's Creations (thank you, Pattie).   The freebie is still available at this point, so go check it out before it's gone.

Hre's a close-up of the quilted heart.  I printed it on kraft cardstock, coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils, and then added teeny-tiny heart gems.  Definitely needed my tweezers to do those.  You'll notice I also doodled faux stitching all around the square of the card and around the lacy circle.

Here's a close-up of the sweet bird which I coloured with my Prismacolor pencils:  

I followed this sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday:

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Patterned paper:  Scrap Works
  • Cardstock:  Recollections, and unknown/unmarked from my stash
  • Dies:  Spellbinders Lacy Circles, Nellie's Multiframes - Ovals and Circles
  • Marker:  Tombow watercolour marker (for faux stitching)
  • Accents:  Feathers, gems (dollar store), charm (stash)
