So Tweet... card

Today I made this beautiful card for a couple of reasons.  first off there are three awesome challenges going on and I've been itching to enter some more and share my creations. I highly encourage everyone to join us...

I really liked this little bird so after buying some files from Doodle Pantry; called: Tweet House.  I printed it off, colored it with colored pencils and darkened where shadow would be.  I made my own card base out of a light blue speckled card stock (like a robin's egg) stamped "on the wings of love" on the inside with basic brown from stampin' up and the stamp I received from my mother-in-law.  Then I took a piece of light blue card stock and ran it through my new cuttlebug with a flower background & rounded the corners. I then mounted that on bright yellow paper, rounded the bottom corners, and glued all that down on the card base; also with only the bottom corners rounded.

 Then I  cut out the tag from silhouette cameo faux stitching tags.  Next I got some ribbon and folded (and sewn because I couldn't find my hot glue gun) flowers then stitched the border of the tag.  Sewed the flowers onto the tag and glued it down to the card.  I then placed 3 white rhinestones in the corner (just looked like it needed it) & stamped "So Tweet" in the basic brown.  I used pop dots to pop up the bird and added some gold Elmer's glitter glue to accent the sentiment and bird's feathers.  

So this is my first time rolling ribbon flowers so don't judge them too harshly.  I really like this card... i'm tempted to keep it but what good is a card not given?

    I've tried 4 times to read the word verification thing and can't seem to get it right. It's very difficult to read. Won't you consider using comment moderation and get rid of the word verification? It would make it so much easier to leave comments for you.
