You Are My Sunshine

I decided to make a card with that cute kit I purchased HERE from Shanna Vineyard.  I used this kit to make a two page layout of Taylor coming home from the hospital a few days ago and just loved it.

This time I pulled my images into Silhouette Studio, resized them and then cut them out without any border.
Here is what I came up with:
This is a window card with the circle cut out in the middle (well, here it is off center!) can see it better here:
I added some long legs to the little birds....I thought that made them even cuter on this card!  I doubled up the pink one for some dimension...used some Glossy Accents here and there...a little bit of twine, a border punched with a Recollection punch and that was about it.  Oh, except...if you look closely I did use the BEAST for some zig zag stitching.  Papers were from Jillibean and Echo Park.

Here are a couple of closeups:

Happy Crafting!

  3. Loved the shine on the heart and the birds wings.Oh I loved the story you shared of icing sugar all over-- it must have been hilarious!! Thank god I didnt put candles on my mom's cake!
    and about my house being house is a mess 99% of the time --by mess I mean embarrassingly messy like if an unannounced guest turns up there wont be place to sit or walk safely!

  4. Thanks so much for playing along Susan! This card is darling! I love the glossy accents! Perfect touch!
