A Card For The Love Birds!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a fab weekend! I've had a lovely day out with my sister today shopping, trying to buy everything i need for my trip to Tanzania! Not long until i go now! I'm so excited!!!

One preperation i have had to make is ensuring that i have made cards for all the big events that i will be missing whilst i'm away - one of which is my good friend Ruth's first wedding anniversary. (I actually missed her wedding last year aswell as i was on my honeymoon, hopefully i will be in country to celebrate her second anniversary!!)

Here's the card that i made for her and her hubby:

A 'Rose Red' card base, with a strip of 'DSP' from the 'Springtime Vintage' collection. The birds have been created with the 'Two-Step Bird Punch' in 'Rose Red', the wings are 'Pretty in Pink', i have used two small 'Basic Pearls' as eyes! The branches are punched from 'Crumb Cake' cardstock. I glued the birds and branches onto some 'Whisper White', layered on some 'Rose Red' and then some 'Crumb Cake' card. The little hearts are created from some scraps of 'DSP' and have been punched out using the 'Owl Punch'.

I'm entering this card into the 'Cupcake Craft Challenge', this week it's a sketch challenge.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
