Welcome to another fabulous challenge brought to you by

Our challenge is "For a Couple" and is being sponsored by

I have been given this cute stamp called "Bird House Spring Love".  I just love it.  You may know that my sister Rebecca has five parrots.  They are adorable and so funny.  They also have several bird feeders outside as she and her husband are such bird fans.  I saw this and just had to have it.  I modeled these birds after her bird Sydney.  Isn't she just gorgeous!!

This is a picture of her at Christmas a few years ago.  She has many more yellow feathers now and even some red on her tail.

Here's a Top Tip for you today - you can use your Copic (or any other alcohol markers) to color your clear gems the color you want them.  I used clear gems in the center of each flower and colored them yellow.
Here is the inside of the card.  I had intended to put this sentiment on the front but it was a bit too big so I opted to put it on the inside.

Please stop by the CWWC blog and check out all the wonderful projects the DT have created and then put on your crafting tiara and join us in the challenge.

Card recipe:

 Coloring mediums - Copic & Prismacolor markers, Glossy Accents, Wink of Stella
Papers - Bazzill & generic
Gems - Darice
Pearls - Michael's
Embossing folder - Darice
Sentiment - Stampin' Up (outside) Our Daily Bread (inside)
Punch - Fiskars
Ribbon - from a candy win so I'm not sure

Beautiful...Love the monochromatic blue colors. So delighted you blessed us with your project last week at Word Art Wednesday. We have a new Challenge going on and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 18:6 which says, "In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears." Have a blessed weekend.
