You're So Tweet

Happy Monday!!
Today is a new challenge at the
and our theme this time is 
"Flags and/or Banners".

I obviously chose "banners"!
I had a lot of fun with this challenge
starting with a background using
This has become one of my all time favorite embossing folders.

I next decided to get a little bit creative and for my banners I chose
This is a cute set of "tag" dies that have 5 sizes in the set.
I used the two largest for my card.

I decided on the cute little Birde from
Elizabeth Craft Designs Birdie.
I have had this little bird for awhile and was thrilled to
pull him out and use him.
I debated over if I should "perch" him on something
other then the ribbon, but I decided I like him
just like he is!
Isn't he cute?  So plump  and a perfect size!

All the papers you see on the bird/banner
are "snippets" from my stash I am
trying so very hard to use up..right...LOL!

I added a ribbon/bow from Really Reasonable Ribbon
and I was done!

I love these colors! Sweetest little birdie and banner with all the little additional parts. Of course, I'm crazy about embossing, too, so love the folder. Darling card, Diane!

Oh this is so pretty. I love the banners...what a nice card! That ribbon is gorgeous and the minute I saw the card, before I read your post, I said to myself: that's ribbon from Reasonable Ribbon. Hahhahaha. It is awesome ribbon and looks gorgeous. It does make beautiful bows, doesn't it! Thanks for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our June challenge! Hugs, Gail

Hi Diane

What a lovely card - and as you say, such a cute plump birdie too :) I adore the embossing folder you used (a new one to me), fabulous ribbon and bow - and a perfect sentiment as well.
