A Birdie Wedding

Last night I had the chance to visit with a cousin of mine. We enjoyed a meal and great conversation. Our plan was to scrapbook but we talked more than anything else. While we chatted I was able to make a card for a Bridal Shower I'll be attending in a few minutes.
I used Kazan's Sketch 35 as my guideline and I am quite pleased with the outcome. I used my Home Decor cricut cartridge to cut out the two birds and the branch. I embossed the bottom piece with my cuttlebug. I then puched out tiny flowers with a punch. After assembly I felt the card needed a little bling. (After all it is for a wedding.) I added the jewels for the center of the flowers and a little sparkle to the birds.

My Friend

I found a new challenge site that has inspired me. Emma at Allsorts has created a challenge this week to include her sketch with a two color combo.

I decided to use teal and rust which went well with the patterned paper I found. I really like this little girl. She came outfitted with a watering can, wheel barrow, and birdhouse. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the flowers on the side.

Thank you for taking a look and have a great day!
