Love

A quick post to share a card.

I used Lucy's sketch #2.  Spellbinders Blossom die were embossed on card base.  Two birds were die cut in pink and blue separately.  It was entered into Moxie Fab World Cool Tools Die cutting challenge.  I was really inspired by the different use of manual die cut machine and digital die cut machine.  I am hoping to play a few more times before the challenge ends.


Colors are from ColorQ #181.


I used my new dies.  So it also fits the current Wee Memories Challenge.


ETA: Just found out about the Barbles Challenge #2 at Kinsale creations blog.  It fits the bird theme.
Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
cardstock: Bazzil, PTI
Stamp: PTI mega mixed messages
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, ,
Other: Spellbinders Bloosom die, Memory box bird die, Fiskar pinking shear, button from sewing stash Pin It

Hi Chunyuan, you asked about the texture on the base of my 'grapes' card.... it's not an embossing folder ,the card comes like that and is called 'Hammer Texture' cardstock.
Thanks for all your lovely comments and hope this helps :)
