Ippity Hop Monday - Love Birds

Good morning and welcome to another {ippity} hop.  Being so close to Valentine's Day I decided to make a little valentine  card using the February card sketch from Ippity.  Here is the card I made based on the sketch.

 To create this card, I used the Ippity sets pictured below as well as a cloud background stamp from Hero Arts that was stamped with blue chalk ink, and a  heart cluster stamp from  Memory Box.  I turned the branch around  so the birds would fit better.  Copic and Prismacolor  markers were used to color the images.  To give the card a whimsical feel, I stamped hearts in the clouds.  Then I finished off the card with brown gingham ribbon.  For all the details on this month's challenge and to play along for a chance to win the grand monthly prize click here.



 

I used the following stamps from each stamp set.  The sweet little birds and branch are from  Fall for You. The sentiment came from How YOU Doin' and the frame came from Cherish Your Dreams. I like how all the stamp sets work so well together.

Oh, and one more thing to share with you.  If you're a fan of Glee, check out Listology.  They have compiled a  list of what they consider the 25 best  Glee performances.  Check out the videos and see if your favorite made the list.  My favorite performance, Home by Kristen  Chenoweth didn't make the list but maybe yours will. Enjoy!
