Somebirdy loves you, tweetie pie...

LOVE this color combo....Outdoor Denim, Hollyhock, Sweet Leaf, Sunflower, Twilight, Chocolate & White Daisy (I know...it's a lot of colors but I think they go so well with each other and most of them are in small doses)!!!  I used any and all B&T paper with these colors....Magic Moments, Animal Cookies (backside), Tinkerin', Bella, Emporium, etc.)
-------------------------------------------------
I tried to do the flower without a punch so I hand-drew a circle and then cut it out using a scallop motion (huh???  does that make sense?)  The center is a corduroy brad (Goldrush - didn't have Sunflower) from the Autumn Mini-Medleys.  I distressed using chocolate ink.  I stamped the birdcage from Love Birds stamp set and masked the 'base' so it would be a little shorter and fit on my focal point...the birds are stamped on the backside of the Tulip Hearts paper from Animal Cookies and the little hearts are stamped on some Hollyhock B&T and cut out.

The inside of the card...aren't those little birdies the CUTEST!!! I chose not to color them in but instead added some shading using my Grey Flannel Marker (LOVE that thing!)
