You're So Tweet!

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It's week 41 of our WSC Getting Sketchy and we have another fabulous sketch for you this week!  Meet MFTWSC41!

This week, I put my Copics down and got a little scrappy with my card.  For the focal panel, I started with a white panel embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and added a branch cut with the Branch With Leaves Die-Namics and then built my scene from there.  The leaves were also cut from the Branch With Leaves Die-Namics (love the embossed veins on these leaves).

I added a sweet little bird cut out of patterned paper using the Contempo Cage Die-Namics.  The wing is popped up with a Jody Booster for some dimension and I used a Baby Braddie for the eye.  All of the patterned paper is Honey Cake from My Minds Eye and I added tons of stitching using my new Janome Sew Mini (happy dance!).  The sentiment, "You're So Tweet" is from the darling Homespun Birdhouse set.

For the inside, I added some more patterned paper, more stitching (smile) and added a little banner using the Mini Pennants Die-Namics, and then stamped "Thanks" also from Homespun Birdhouse.  Super cute no?  Love these Mini Pennants Die-Namics.

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
