Birthday Birdie Wishes

Guess what!
I've made a card just for fun finally!!  And I'm posting twice in one day!  Haven't done that in forever!  It will be a quick post, I promise :)
Isn't it so cute!!  There have been so many challenges that I have longed to participate in, but never seem to find the time to make something up for...but I set a goal to do it this week!  I get so busy with DT projects that the just-for-fun stuff gets sort of put to the side, but I'm figuring out that I need to make time for it :)

So I used a sweet Meljen's Designs image Tweet Heart Birds.  It's colored in with my ShinHan markers and decorated with some liquid pearls and glitter pen.  As I mentioned in my previous post, I have become obsessed with my sewing of course I stitched on this card :)  I sort of messed up on the zigzags on the image panel...but a little clever embellishing helped cover that up.

I used a simple tag from Lili of the Valley, but did some masking so that it could face the other way.  Tucked it behind a sweet little bow with some twine strung through it and that was it!!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    A Creative Romance-Bingo (pearls, glitter, bow)
