You & Me

 Here is this week's sketch #103 for the Stars and Stamps blog...
And here is my take. I used BoBunny crush dsp along with the SU! bird punch. I added a heart-shaped glittered button that I coated with glossy accents to seal the glitter, and added some baker's twine. The sentiment panel was done with the SU! So Many Sayings set, and I stamped the background first with a G Studio heart stamp in Memento angel pink ink. If you click the picture, you may be able to see that stamping better. Two pink & red heart-shaped brads, a snippet of ribbon, and this was done.
I'm also linking this up to the OWH Stars & Stamps Our Daily Bread Designs challenge to use 3 designer papers. ODBD will be making a shipping donation based on the number of cards linked up, so please consider playing along and linking your card up here for this worthy cause! ODBD is also giving away two $25 gift certificates for prizes, so grab those designer papers and come play along! It's a win/win situation for OWH and our soldiers, and maybe for you too!
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

What sweet papers and I like that you alternated the heart element with the two birds. It add a nice pit of texture with the twine tie. Nice work Carol!
