Hello there 🙂 For years, I wasn’t a ‘bird’ person, but after working at a pet store for awhile, I got to know about them better, and fell in love. I even ended up rescuing 4 budgies, of which I still have 2. I really enjoy using bird images on my cards, and how sweet are these Love Birds, from Lee Holland?!?! I colored them up with my Copics, then fussy cut them out. I had a completely different idea for this card, but tackled sorting out my mess of dies, and found this pretty wreath one in the mess. The curve went perfectly with the image!! After cutting the wreath out, leaving the center solid, I attached the birds, and stamped the sentiment. I glued it on to a circular card shape, and done!! Very simple, but so elegant and effective for a wedding card <3
