CPS 99-Little Bitty Bird

Today I had some time to create and again decided to use a sketch challenge for my inspiration.  I used CPS#99.  Here is the sketch:                       

Here is my card based on this sketch:


I used a kraft base, impressed with the woodgrain impression plate.  The Sweet Blush strip was embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder, just because it's almost Valentines Day and I only get to use this folder a few times a year!  For the scallop in the sketch, I used the loopy border from Little Bitty Bird.  I thought was a bit different than using scallops which was my first thought.  I wrapped a few loops of red/white twine and tied it in a little bow.  The focal image is once again one of those cute little birds perched on a branch colored with gel pens.  The bird is cut with some felt and the eye is a tiny rhinestone.  This was a very quick card to put together.  Think I will send this off to a friend...just because!
All Materials PTI other than the twine and Cuttlebug Heart Embossing folder.
