Hello Everyone!

I played with the Love Birds set this week; it is one that is right up my alley, as I love all things nature.  The tree branch and matching die is so much fun to play with and a perfect compliment to the tree background in the Tender Thoughts set. 

I started by inking up my background trees in Baked Brown Sugar and stamping them on white, then die cutting them out with their matching Birch Forest Die; lastly, backed the trees with a light blue cs.  I made a square window with my Square Spellbinders dies and popped it up on dimensionals. 
The birds were colored with Prismacolor Pencils and die cut out with their matching Love Birds Die.  The tree branch was stamped twice and colored with Prismacolor pencils, then die cut out with the matching die from the Love Birds Die set.  One branch was used for the birds and the other was cut into pieces to embellish the corners of the window.
The sentiment was stamped on vellum an heat embossed with gold embossing powder; I just love this hot trend!
A seam binding bow finishes it off!

I hope I have inspired you!  More details on how to make this are on my blog.
Have a blessed week!

This is precious, Lee Ann. The love birds are perfect against the birch tree background! Fabulous color combo as well.

I love it. So well done. Your layering is great and I love your color scheme. I especially like the extra little branches you added in the corners. Well done.
