Love Birds

Finally I have managed to grab a bit of time to enter the 1st of their monthly competitions to win next month's offer of the month over at the fabulous DigiStamp Boutique.This month you have to use the current offer of the month which is the gorgeous Love Birds collection.

I'm a huge fan of Sally-Ann Hancock's, and these designs are just gorgeous.

I have used the sketch from Sketch and Stash Challenge #11, and I have have used loads of new and neglected stash for this challenge (listed below) This is the first time I've entered one of their challenges, and I'll certainly be back.

Image: Love Birds by Sally-Ann Hancock @ Digistamp Boutique (new stash), coloured with my beloved promarkers: Berry Red, Poppy, Ruby, Blossom, Rose Pink, Maroon. The image was cut using large classic circle nestie in the cuttlebug and faux stitching doodled with a black micron pen

The mat was cut from dark red core'dinations card using a large scallop circle nestie in the cuttlebug and sanded

The paper was old neglected stash - an old paper pad that came free in an edition of Simply Cards & Papercraft

Pale pink Doodlebug card was wrapped with Anita's red organza ribbon and Smirk red grosgrain ribbon.

The interlocking heart charm is new and was bought from Calico Crafts

I punched 5 circles using a SU 1" circle punch from the dark red Core'dinations card, sanded them and doodled some faux stitching with an opaque white Inkssentials pen.

The paper flowers are from one of the new Papermania Embellishment Trio's, the centres are from a set of papermania gems that I have had for about 2 years and never used, I'm ashamed to say!

And finally I used 3 pink Papermania adhesive stones in the top right hand corner
