Happy Anniversary Love Birds

Hi, everyone!  Today I am sharing an anniversary card I made using a freebie bird image from Newton's Nook.  I haven't played along over there for quite a while so I wanted to join in this time. I printed the birds a couple times so I could fussy-cut and also pop up the wings.  I coloured just the beaks with my Prismacolor pencils.  The heart die is from Impression Obsession, and the sentiment word dies are from Tattered Lace Everyday Sentiments.  The textured cardstock is double-sided, from EK Success, and I used 3 varying shades of purple.  I added two scored lines on the top and bottom of the purple panel.  The yellow cardstock is from Recollections. The charm and twine are from my stash.



I enjoy supporting the following challenges:
