It's Not All Black and White

two little lovebirds

This card uses today's sketch challenge as the layout. Well, it's so late, it's now actually yesterday's sketch challenge. The birds and heart are from the Cute Curls stamp set by Kim Hughes at Cornish Heritage Farms. Aren't they darling? And how cute is this new sentiment from Verve Visual? Just perfect with all the popular bird images right now.

I stamped on Pearlized white paper and colored with a water brush and inks. The sentiment is stamped on a word window punch and layered on a large oval punch with added dots. The taffeta ribbon is layered on a strip of card stock.

What's In It?
Stamps: Cute Curls (Cornish Heritage Farms); Canvas (Stampin' Up!); Flirty Phrases (Verve Visual)
Paper: Pearlized white (Paper Accents); CoCo Collection (Webster's Pages); Chocolate Chip, Bordering Blue, Very Vanilla (SU!)
Ink: Onyx black (Versafine); Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Brocade blue, pretty in pink, ballet blue, regal rose, creamy caramel (SU!)
Accessories: chocolate taffeta ribbon (SU!); large oval, small and large circle, word window and photo corner punches (SU!); white Glaze pen (Sakura); Gemstones (Hero Arts); dimensionals; water brush

I LOVE this card! The images are so cute because, well, you know how I am about anything swirly and curly. This is just so pretty! The sentiment would be so perfect for a wedding card. Fantastic!
