Little birdie love....

Hi folks and my second post today!! I couldn't wait to ink up this little cutie but I had a bit of a bother getting her as she slipped out of her packaging and went AWOL in the post along with some buddies...all safe and sound now!!

I have made this card for Michael to give to his girlfriend on Valentines Day...I hope they both like it.

So for this card I used my brand new papers from Fancy Pants - Love Collection...delish!! The stamp is from Personal Impression and is called Bluebird's proposal although I have made it pink....mmm perhaps I should have made it blue for a boy, oh well never mind!! I coloured the stamp with copics. I added some pom pom ribbon, felt flowers and hearts which were die cut, oh and also a couple of buttons threaded with black twine....bought all these from Sew Sweet. I cut the message from the same papers and finished off with some pearls. Forgot about the stitching and I tried something a bit different to kind of match in so I made it look like a heart beat.....well it's supposed to!
