Love Birds - Crazy 4 Challenges #17

Happy day after Christmas and Boxing Day, peeps! Hope everyone had a smashing Christmas! It's another Crazy 4 Challenges day and our December hostess, Joanne, has a VERY fun sketch for us today.

I'm using images from My Favorite Thing's November kit called Love Birds. It's not too early to start making Valentine's Day cards so I decided I might as well get started. I stamped the images (the tree and birds are two separate images) on a Cream Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut/embossed it with a Label Five Nestabilities die and popped it up on 3M foam squares. My patterned paper is from the Farmer's Market 8 x 8 pad from October Afternoon and my card stock is Kiwi Kiss and Very Vanilla. I punched the sentiment out with a SU! oval punch and matted it with more ovals using PTI's Aqua Mist card stock. A little ribbon and a PTI Vintage button and twine complete the sketch.

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
