Love Birds

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday!

It's Alphabet Challenge time and today's letter is... P for Pretty Petals
For my DT creation I made an Anniversary card featuring the sweet Bird Swing image from Wee Stamps! It's stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with Spectrum Noirs markers and the sentiment is from Jaded Blossom. I cut my image out with the Labels 17 Nesties then sponged around the edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink, the paper is from The paper Studio. I hand dyed the seam binding & papers flowers with Spectrum Noir reinkers CG2 & BT4, spritzed them with a little Perfect Pearls Mist... added the teal gems and it's done!

That's all for now... thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to the challenge blog to see the beautiful creations by the other team members!

This is so pretty, Tammy! I love that image, it's been awhile since I last inked it myself, perhaps it's time to put it to use again... I really like how you've combined turquoise with green, looks great!
