Love Birds

Hi again! Wow two posts in two days! I just had to show you this card - its so basic but I think its just so cute! I cant take credit for the idea though, I cased some cards by Jill Geraghty- Groves in the current Australian Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft Mag.
To make the birds I punched out circles of Spring Silhouettes DSP using the 1 3/8" & 1 1/4" circle punches. Their wings are made by stamping the large flower from Looks Like Spring in Soft Sky on Vanilla cs then cutting out a section of 2 or 3 petals. I then defined the petals(wing feathers) with a black stampin write marker. The marker was also used to draw eyes and legs. I cut little triangles out of Blue Bayou for their beaks. The birds are mounted on dimensionals onto Blue bayou card. The heart and love you are from Short & Sweet stamped in basic black ink.
Don't you think they are just so cute? I was going to make them for regionals but didn't think it was right to do a case - so I've just made up 40 cards in 3 different original designs - I'll try to post them for you tomorrow night - if not I'll put them up when I get back.
Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments on my last card, I'm stoked you all liked it!!
