Love Birds

Happy Thursday Bloggie friends,

We are having another HOT one here in North Texas.  My poor a/c has been going full blast for days now.   This is the only part of Summer I don't particularly like ... high electric bills!

I was buzzing around the blogs that I follow and saw  a cutie at CardzTV and thought I would scraplift the style of card from Mary's site.  Stop by and give Mary a look-see too!  Also, I needed a card for a Bridal Shower.  This was perfect as these two kids are so sweet!

Card front
I made the title a bit larger than the 'love birds.'  Since I wanted to have a 'girl' and 'boy' in different colors, I cut this out three times.  I think it came out really cute.  The patterned paper could not have matched better.  I picked the bird colors them went on a hunt for the background papers. 

A peek inside.
 Since I had cut this so many times it was easy to have extra birds for the
inside too.

Here is the recipe for this cutie:
Size:  A2 (overall 5.50" x 4.25")
Birds:  STRAIGHT FROM THE NEST, pg 35, Phrase and Phrase-s, cut @ 2"
