Love Birds

 Today is a cloudy day on the island in Florida so I am making some cards for the challenges on my list to do.
 This card is for a sketch at Sweet Sunday and the Feathers and Fur Challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow to do a vintage or shabby chic card to feature birds or furry animals. I chose to use this vintage bird graphic from Create with TLC . I simply printed the image and tore the edge and distressed with ink. I used a GKD Leather card stock for the base to which I layered a mat of MME Script Pattern Paper embossing the lower part with Cuttlebug EF Forest Branches. I added some strips of GKD Stripe Paper and attached  cut out pieces of a doily. The sentiment is from Flourishes stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle.
Challenges:
Sweet Sunday: Sketch shown on left
Sugar Creek Hollow: Made vintage card with birds
Anything Goes Challenge: Vintage/Shabby Chic
Shopping Our Stash: Create a Birthday Theme
Alphabet Challenge: A for anything with wings.


Hope everyone had a lovely Valentine Day. Guess I am still thinking about love birds.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
