Love Birds

Wow...a busy day, with a combination of work and fun.  I was able to get in some singles tennis this morning, which is always a bonus--rode my bike home, did some work, then was able to spend some time in the studio before grocery shopping :)

Enough about my day, let's move on to the fun! I've decided to enter into the most current Addicted to CAS Challenge,  As you can see their code word is birds.

I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge, since the challenge is stencils (which is one of my many favorite techniques :)).

Here is my take on a clean and simple card with birds and stencils.

I enjoy the simplicity of this card and it does capture some of my favorite techniques embossing paste and coloring...oh wait, I have lots of favorite techniques!  I used my copic markers to color the birds and heart.  I used a bit of Wink of Stella glitter on the heart and put some glossy accents on the glasses---it is very cute in real life, and so simple to make.

Hope you enjoy the card!  Thanks for visiting.
