Cute Love Birds

Well I've managed to survive the last 2 weeks without any card making or blogging, so I had to get my fix of it today - despite all of my holiday washing and ironing!

This card has been made for a colleague who works in our office in Sydney and has recently got engaged - congratulations Mim and Ali. 

The large flowered paper is from the Forever Friends "Pink Parfait" collection and the smaller flowered paper came from one of my craft magazines.  They have both been edged with Tim Holtz distress ink - shabby shutters.

The image is a digi from Digi Stamp Boutique called Cute Love Birds and has been coloured with Promarkers.  The ribbon is from my stash and makes a really good frame for it too.  In each corner of the frame I have placed a die cut from a Sizzix die "flowers & branch" and used Liquid Pearls "lemon yellow" for it's centre.

The sentiment has been created using instructions from Karen at "a lil' bit of redrottiness" and has been mounted onto a scalloped circle with leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts to complete the card.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room - photo inspiration
Incy Wincy Designs - sparkle & shine - TOP 3
Tuesday Throwdown - florals
There's Magic in the Air - colour challenge
Sentimental Sundays - cute & cuddly

You entered a card in my challenge this past month, two actually but the coloring was really so beautiful on the one with the little couple that I thought of you. It's only a once monthly challenge so it doesn't require a huge committment. If you would be interested please email me at studio313creations@yahoo.com
