Pretty Birds

I made this card for my friend Meg's Birthday.  The image is from Gecko Galz, Birds and Bees  You can sign up for their newsletter here Leann is always offering free images to her readers.  Gecko Galz, have an Invite a Friend challenge going on for the whole year.  All you have to do is follow their blog and then join the Yahoo group.  Tell them who sent you (ME) and the person who brings the most followers will get that months digital products.  Thats right you win all the collage sets, digi stamps, and paper set!!!  So be sure to say I sent you:), and send some of your friends over too, you will be glad you did. There are all kinds of challenges and opportunities to win free products.
I cut the Shaplie frames from Penny Duncan's CD.  I used my Perfect layers rulers to get a perfect set of solid frames to mount behind the Shaplies.  I am now a Brand Ambassador for Perfect Paper Crafting, so if you use my link and coupon code Bove5%, you will save 5% on the Perfect layers rulers and get flat rate priority shipping. 
 It was hard to  photograph this, I did some fussy cutting on the birds and the pink flowers but you can't really see it here.  I also embossed all 3 of my Shaplie frames with a different pattern.  The lace flowers are from Pizzazz Aplenty.  I also want to mention that I printed the image on Staples Photo Supreme double sided matte paper.  It really makes a difference when you are printing vintage ephemera and deep colored papers.  Well that's it for today, thanks for looking.  ~Diane
