Love Is Tweet

This is a card I made for my nephew and his new fiancee to let them know how happy I am that they have gotten engaged. As luck would have it, and a fabulous coincidence, they got engaged on my wedding anniversary. I couldn't have been more thrilled.

For this card, I used the Love Birdies set from Doodle Pantry. I thought it would make a fabulous engagement card. Laurie has some great sentiments with this set, and I used Love is Tweet and placed it inside the piece of paper tacked to the birdhouse. I colored the entire image with Copic markers (leaves - G20, G24, G28; Vine, Roof, Step and Flower Basket - E37, E39; Birdhouse - E33, E35; Heart Outline Beaks and Flowers - Y02, Y06; Sentiment - E00; Bird 1 - BG02, BG11, BG13, BG15; Bird 2 - BG05, BG07, BG09). I found these adorable little diamond rings at Michaels, and placed one around the vine at the top of the roof. To finish the card off, I put crystal bling in the center of the flowers.

Pop on over to Doodle Pantry's store and get this School Bus set free with purchase from May 25-27 only.
