"Best Birds" are Love Birds

Designing for my stamp class when also needing a special anniversary card for my daughter and son-in-law, I chose to use the "Best Birds" stamp set. I had long admired it in our previous catalog and was thrilled to discover it was carried over into the new catalog. So I quickly ordered the bundle while I could. I think this is one of my very favorite cards!

No designer series paper on this one - I made my own using the new In Color, Powder Pink, along with last year's In Colors, Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy. Blender pens for coloring, Basic Black Archival Ink for stamping and Soft Suede for stamping on the background. I painted all items before cutting them out using the Birds & Blooms Thinlits.

I thought mounting the birds so the female was leaning into the male made this card especially appropriate for an anniversary card. I originally planned to use the In Color Bitty Bows but had misplaced them; so I used the Dapper Denim ruched ribbon from last year's catalog.
