Little Birdies

Makeup 4 the Weekend - M4TW39 Lime, Turquoise & Kraft
SCS Ways to Use It - WT283 Button Time

I thought these sweet stamps from Tweet Things would be cute for an anniversary card. And to confess what a paper hoarder I am, that is an old, retired color called Luscious Lime from Stampin' Up! on my card. {grin} It looks delicious paired with Cool Caribbean and Kraft, don't you think?

The birdies are watercolored and the sentiment is filled in with my Luscious Lime marker. For the scalloped layers, I ran them through a Xyron to coat them with adhesive, fixed the other pieces on the center and covered the edges with dazzling diamonds glitter for some sparkle. And I found the perfect, sparkly lime-colored button in my Will to Day Dream kit as the finishing touch. {cheer}
