Love Birds

Good Morning Everyone

First off let me say I am sorry about the picture it really does not show how pretty the glitter on the leaves are but when you live in an area with no sun for months you just have to do your best. Seeing the sun at this time of the year is like winning the lottery about  2 million to 1.

I die cut the tree twice and cut off the leaves and glued them to the brown die cut tree. Then coated them with Sakura 3D lacquer and my favorite Art Glitter.  I used the classic heart (3¼ x 3⅜″)  on the bench and then added the small heart in red glitter card stock.  For the birds I die cut twice and trimmed the white and attached it to each bird. Then added the small tender leaf as a wing which was die cut out of white glitter cardstock.

  1. Yet another stunning scene, I really like it. I can see the sparkle.
    Know the feeling regards the lack of sunshine.
    Here in the North East of Scotland the winters can be rather gloomy. We do get some nice sunny extremely cold days but they are few and far between. Today has been very "driech" as we would say. Dark, raining, just totally miserable. Never mind, spring is somewhere round the corner..........!!!

  2. Hello Diane, gorgeous card, love your scene. Your dies are beautiful, what a wonderful Valentine's card this will make, hugs Kate x

  3. that is really cute. :)

    your comment today re: the whistling ducks was perfect timing. i had recently won a gift subscription to birds and blooms from a blogger friend. my first issue arrived yesterday. after receiving your comment, i opened it up and found the whistlers you mentioned. :)

  4. Your leaf glitter does show up on my monitor, very sparkling. Love this bench (which I bought because I saw you using it back during the Halloween cards!). Great idea to add the hearts to the bench. Such a nifty pretty card, and you do such amazing things with the MB dies. Can't wait to get some of the newer ones I'm seeing on different blogs. TFS & hugs

  5. A beautiful card with such a lovely scene. The leaves must have taken ages to make - they look stunning.

  6. Your love birds are so adorable Diane, and you have created such a beautiful setting for them to be in! Beautiful blue background, too, btw! Hugs, Ira x
