CPS102 - So Tweet

I made this card for the CPS102 Sketch Challenge. You can find a copy of the sketch by clicking here. I started with a standard card base of Pink Pirouette, and layered Chocolate Chip (4" x 5 1/4") and Basic Grey Bittersweet paisley paper (3 7/8" x 5 1/8") on top. Next, I cut out a small piece of Basic Grey Bittersweet stripe paper (3" x 3 1/2") and layered it with Chocolate Chip (2 3/4" x 3 1/4") and Whisper White (2 5/8" x 3 1/8") CS that had been stamped with Pink Pirouette flowers. Then I added my scallop border on the bottom of the panel and attached it to the card base.

Next, I stamped the bird image in Purely Pomegranate ink, and the beak and feet in Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White CS and cut out the pieces. I added a clear Tiny Twinkle for the bird's eye and popped it up with dimensionals. I didn't like the position of the tail, so I cut it off and added it behind the bird.

To finish off the card, I made a little flower out of the white ribbon, and added my hearts and sentiment to the flower center. I wanted the little bird to look like he picked the flower, so I added a tiny strip of Pink Pirouette CS.

This card was created using the sketch on the PaperTreyInk blog. I started with a card base of Chocolate chip, then cut out a scalloped edge on a piece of Whisper White CS. Next, I cut my large layers: Pink Pirouette (4" x 4 1/2"), Basic Grey green floral paper (3 3/4" x 4 1/4"), and then added my scalloped edge and brads before adhering it to the card base.

I then cut out the Basic Grey stripe paper (1 1/4" x 4"), and layered it onto top of Pink Pirouette (1 1/2" x 4") and Chocolate Chip (1 3/4" x 4"), then attached it to the card base. To finish off the card, I cut out the middle panel: Chocolate Chip (2 1/2" x 3 1/2"), Pink Pirouette (2 1/4" x 3 1/4"), and Whisper White (2" x 3"). I randomly stamped the small floral image from Fifth Avenue Florals in Riding Hood Red ink onto the Whisper White CS. Once the image dried, I added small Kiwi Kiss dots around the outside of the flowers, and colored some of the flower petals with Pink Pirouette ink.

I attached my main image to the card base, and then stamped my sentiment in Kiwi Kiss onto Whisper White. To finish it off, I punched it out with my Key Tag Punch and layered it with Pink Pirouette.
