Love Birds

Hi all, Wow I've been away longer than what I thought! I hope your not suffering from that cold that's been floating around, I had it for a couple of weeks.But I'm glad that it is over and I can get back to what I enjoy. I'm the designer today over at Card A Day Blog and I wanted to show you all what I created in my corner today. If your stopping in from the Card a Day Blog, welcome to my little corner. The theme this week is congratulations
As I said in my previous blog, there are alot of upcoming weddings that I need cards for so here is another but this card could be used for other events as well. It could be used for Valentine's day, congrats on an engagement or an Anniversary, just change the sentiment.

So this card was so easy to do. The base of the card I received from a swap box, in there was a variety pack of card bases in reference to love, but this one was special with all the lettering and definitions all over it. So I kept the rest of the card pretty simple to not draw away from that card base. With the popularity of this type of paper out there with the writing all over it you could do the same similar thing.
 These were a few of the pieces in this project. The love birds were cut from scrap paper at 1.25" it came from the Holiday Cakes cricut cartridge (and yes you can cut paper with the cake cartridges). The flourish came from accent essentials but decided not to use it just couldn't get it to work with the card. The ribbon I think I got last summer at a flea market (it sparkles). The congratulations came from a pre-cut sticker pack and I stuck it on a scrap of the pink paper and punched with SU large scallop oval. The inside sentiment I found online. So that is it, plain and simple and a breeze to put together. The longest part was probably cutting the birds out.
I hope you all enjoy this card and would like to have you join me on Monday for the Spring has Sprung blog hop and maybe so blog candy too. I want to bring some of the things that I have been working on this past month so you'll see more posts next week as I get back to bloggin again. Thanks for joining me today...
