Love Birds - Not the final cut!

This was the first card I made for the DigiStamp Boutique competition, but I decided that I didn't like it. I'm happy enough with the image, although the blue chalk got a bit out of hand. But because I decided to use lilacs and limey greens to colour the image I thought it would be perfect with the Papermania Spring Burst  papers, but it just didn't work out.  But hey - we learn by our mistakes, right?........ right?

Image: Love Birds by Sally-Ann Hancock @ DigiStamp Boutique, coloured as ever with Promarkers: Lime, Moss, Lavender, Lilac, Amethyst, Cocoa and blue chalk.

The image and mat were cut using classic oval and scallop oval nesties in the cuttlebug

Purple and Green card used for matting and layering and as background are all core'dinations

Papers are all papermania Spring Burst

The green core'dinations panel was embossed with the cuttlebug Birds & Swirls embossing folder and sanded.

Greeting is Daisy and Dandelion and I have added Papermania clear shimmer dots



Good morning Debbi and what a gorgeous card, i love Sally-Anns designs and this is one of my favourites. You have done a marvellous job of this card, such gorgeous colours!

Hope you have a fabulous day, hugs Linda x
