Super Tweet Card for MPS DT Call

 
This is my submission for My Pink Stamper's design team call.  Her challenge was to use the colors green, pink, and brown - along with one color of your choice (I chose blue) and also to use your favorite cartridge.  I wouldn't say it's easy to pick an absolute favorite, but Create a Critter is so fabulous that I chose it as my fave - at least for today, when I'm working with another cartridge tomorrow that could change!  *LOL*

Here's the card details.

It's a 6 inch square card

Tree is at 5 and 1/2 inches - Create a Critter

I embossed part of the tree with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder

I added grass along the bottom that was created with a Martha Stewart punch.

Birds are cut at 1.75 inches - Create a Critter

One birdie is regular, and the other is flipped so they could face each other

To add a little something I used googly eyes, Cotton Candy Stickles, and a bit of pink bling

I stamped the sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Punny-Licious and cut it out into a rectangle

I used my paper piercer to put little holes in it, and threaded a little blue thread through it to form a sign

I used my paper piercer to make a hole in the tree and put a brad there to hang my little sign

I hope you enjoy this card, and I hope Robyn likes it.  She is always such a joy and an inspiration to so many people - I think it's wonderful she's giving everyone a chance to submit their work for the call!
