You're So Tweet!

Hello and happy Monday afternoon!  I've been trying to upload this card all day, but my computer is freaking out!  I hope I don't see the blue screen of death anytime soon - that would really put a damper on things.  I think most of it is all okay now, except I don't have any sound!  I needs me my sound!!!  Breathe....

I have a fun card for you now, finally - it was so much fun to make, very therapeutic while cutting out all the leaves.  This card started out with The Sweet Stop's SSS68 and I the new TE set, Tweet Hearts.  I was stalking my mailbox this morning because I had just ordered a bunch of the Colorbox Liquid Chalk inks and they arrived today - I used Deep Lagoon (yum), Yellow Ochre (more yum), Lime Pastel (double yum!), and Dark Brown (GASP!!!).  Yep - addicted.  I stamped the leaves around the branch first and then again on Choice Buttercream cardstock and cut them out.  I love the dimension all the layers create, so cute!  I added some finishing touches with my favorite Yellow Pearls and some satin ribbon.  Delish!

Well, I'm off to figure out how to get my sound back without losing anything else on my laptop.  Please come check on me later - haha!

Have a wonderful evening!
