Have a Beautiful Day!!




Hey folks!

The weather here is really getting better... In fact it was a beautiful typical california weather day.. Lotsa sun and clear blue sky.. Since my mood was pretty cheery.. this is what I came up with this card.
In this card I have tried to show a pair of love birds sitting on a window sill. The dies used for cutting are from Spellbinders which I bought just today to make the window.





I am so totally in love with these love birds.. they look so chirpy and happy.. just like I was feeling today. This image is from Daisy Doodles as you can see. And I so love it.. You have to check all the other cute images available from Daisy Doodles. And what more.. they are having a sale right now..
I printed the image on Coconut Swirl paper by Bazzill and colored the image with my favorite copic markers. I cut out the head and one wing of each bird and layered it with foam dots. I think this technique just makes the image pop.
The flowers here are hand made using paper punches and some pearls and some stickles.
Ribbon was lying in my stash so was happy to use it. I think it is from Michaels.
