A hint of Orange....Birds!
My intention in working with the orange though, was to add that unexpected color element. I figured that SU did it on their "Love" card on the back of their Occasions Mini Catalog, so I can use orange with pink too, right? As crafters, we all know there are those cards you design and love, pure accidents that turn out gorgeous, and then there are intentional ones that just don't seem quite right. Tell me what you think, don't be shy! I can handle it....I'm a crafter AND a kindergarten teacher! He he he!
Here's the quick recipe: scallop trim border punch on kraft cardstock, and layered on a purple card base. Flourishes stamped on dark pink, with Always Artichoke (which TOTALLY coordinated with the "kraft" cardstock!). I rounded the corners with my 1/2 inch Zutter Corner Rounder. The heart stamp is cut out and popped up in the middle. Finally, I stamped one bird with Punch Potpourri in Tangerine Tango, and inked the other, then punched them out using the SU bird punch. I drew mouth and wing lines on with a black marker, and added bling eyes with my I*Rock.
