Love Birds

Morning friend bloggers.

Hope you are all well and enjoyed your weekend - don't they go just to darn fast. 
My card today has been made for a colleague at work who asked my to make her a Wedding Card. The Wedding card I put on a previous post is for the same Wedding party so I wanted to make something very different from that. Well I found this gorgeous digi from Pink Gem Designs called Love Birds and it fitted the bill perfectly. Good pun there as digi's are so good on the pocket. 

Love Birds

Aren't they just so so sweet. The Card Blank is from Craftwork Cards and the papers are from Pink Petticoat - love these papers.

I have paper pieced the image with the paper apart from the wings which I coloured with Copic Markers
The flowers are from WOC

The floral die is by Memory Box and is called Catalina Wreath. I purchased this from a craft fair but it is available from many on line stores. The Ribbon and the heart are from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop which I won from a challenge. I shall definitely be buying some more ribbons from them as my winning stash was just gorgeous.

I am entering this card into the following challenges. - Defying Gravity - add ribbon - celebration - Thing with wings - colour combo - Anything goes - anything goes - anything goes - bling it on

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed your visit and if you leave a comment I will be sure to visit you.

Such a beautiful card Sharon! I love the ribbon, congrats on winning it. Your birds are so cute! Just so you know I did get some Letraset Promarkers and I am learning how to use them. I like them. I made an art journal page using them. You can see it here: (if you would like to!)
Thanks for the information on them!
