Love Birdies

Ever hear of a stamp company that people really like and think "that's cool, I'll check it out later."  Then forget for a long time...and then see something else about them and decide to check them out and oh-my-gosh-buy-everything!

That was my experience with Doodle Pantry.  I have a few of their images, and they are cute, and I like to use them.  But I never took the time to look around at what they had to offer other than freebies.  Until I saw they were having a small sale and decided to just take a few minutes to browse around at their images.  Sort of a big mistake to browse because I wanted to purchase every image they have! (I kept myself to 6)...You must go check them out and see all their cuteness!

So, to go along with my new found obsession love, I made a card with one of my images.  I wanted it to be a wedding or anniversary card and felt that the Love Birdies image worked well for that.
I stuck to sort of a black and white color scheme, only adding color with my image.  It turned out so cute that way!  I really love it! 

I added a small personal touch to it with the sentiment.  "Long as I Live" is a song by John Michael Montgomery that we had played during our unity candle lighting at our own wedding and I thought it was a good sentiment that worked with the wedding/anniversary theme I was going for.
There are small silver liquid pearls in the corners, and I added tiny white paint dots all around the image for added elegance.  I also added glitter to the flowers on the side of their sweet little heart house.

I followed the sketch at Creative Inspirations this week, but moved a few of the panels around.  I really wanted to use this fancy die cut frame from Spellbinders, but I didn't want to use the giant one.  So I used the second largest and just shifted the two back panels to the outsides of the card.
