Something Tweet

Recently I've needed a few Anniversary cards and this one just fit that special occasion.


Green cardstock - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Brown cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4"
Blue cardstock - 3 3/4" x 5"
Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge - 4"

Brown cardstock (tree) 3 3/4" x 1 1/2" embossed with Tim Holtz "woodgrain" folder

Embossed the basket with The Paper Studio "Mesh Texture" folder

The leaves were inked with green and then I ran my stylus down the middle to give it some dimension.

For the birds, each was inked up in there own color.  I added light pink to their cheeks by using the end of a #2 pencil eraser.  Black Zig pen was used for the eyes.  

For the top hat, I used a white gel pen and stitched around it.  I made a bow out of pink twine and glued a rhinestone in the middle.  For the heart I used DCWV the immortal love cardstock stack.

Thanks for stopping by!
