Without further ado, here is my card for the blog hop.


I got to play with the adorable Birds 2 Dies for my blog hop project! These guys are so cute! =)


I cut them out using PTI's Rustic White cardstock, colored them with Copic markers then added a few layers for dimension.


By gluing cutouts from the same Birds 2 Dies on the card front, I created a textured background for my colored ones. The speech bubble and sentiment are from the new Hello Sampler set.

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win! Have fun hopping and good luck! =)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
