Happy, Joy birdies

Good Day everyone! It is snowing in Austin!!! Can you believe it?! All of the roof tops are covered. It looks like we got about 1 inch and it has stopped right now, but we will see what happens later ;)

I made a card today and was able to combine two challenges. The PlayDateCafe#17 is a colour challenge, to use red, brown and linen...check. The sketch I used for this card is from the Card Patterns site and this is sketch #52. They are celebrating the 1st year anniversary.
Here is the card, another wedding/anniversary card made with the same two cute birds stamp from Hero Arts that I used yesterday.

They are coloured with Copics and have touches of
Spica Sparkle on them. She also has a tiny pearl in her hair flower piece.

This is the first time for me that I have made one of the scalloped/ruffled paper flowers. I like how it turned out in the red/brown combination. For the center, I used a metal flower brad and a pearl studded fabric covered brad that I removed the fastening part from the back. I also useda length of lace that I first gathered with a needle and thread and cinched into a circle.
Most of the edges of paper on the card are sponged with creamy caramel. Thanks for visiting!
