Some Birdy.....



Hi all! If you saw yesterday's post, you saw my "by accident" card. Well, this card is the reason why I cut the heart out of the paper in the first place! This is, again, one of the new Valentine's Day stamps from Impression Obsession! Aren't the birdies cute???? Not to mention the fun saying courtesy of my DT bud, Penny! She came up with that one for the set!

I kind of labored over this card! I knew I wanted to make the heart the focal point. I originally did the heart just by embossing it on a white card. When I colored the birdies in the heart, it looked really stark. My DH actually looked at it and said -- that card isn't you at all. Funny, he knows what "me" is when it comes to cards!!! :-) So, I ran my card through again, this time cutting out the embossed heart. Then, I knew I had to use the scalloped Nestabilities to mat the heart on. After this, I was digging through an embellishment drawer and found this mini clothespin! After I put the ribbon on the card, it was a great way to add the sentiment! It wasn't my intention to use it... but when I saw it. How perfect! I added some 3mm rhinestones to the corner. And that, my friends, is it!

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!!
