ColourQ Challenge #18 - Love Birds

Good morning!

I was having a little trouble figuring out what I wanted to do with the colors in Arielle's colourQ challenge this week, but I finally came up with something!  Here are the colors:

And here's my card:

Baja Breeze was one of my favorite In Colors from last year.  Doesn't the side piece look like Baja Breeze?  It's actually from the new Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper pad!  (Psst.. Baja Breeze and the other In Colors from last year are available in My Digital Studio!)

I paper-pieced the birds on DSP from the Welcome Neighbor pad, and the beaks were colored in with So Saffron and a Blender Pen.  The hearts on the side were stamped with VersaMark and heat-embossed with white embossing powder.

Well, there was my go at it.  You should play along!  :)  

By the way, I'm going to try something different with the "ingredients" list, to help with ease of reading.  Have a great Sunday!
