ISSC05 - Have a Tweet Birthday

Hi and welcome back to my blog for another iSpy sketch challenge.   This week DJ Rants is the featured designer and this is the sketch inspired by her gorgeous card.

I decided to interpret the sketch a little differently this week.  Instead of sticking to the actual circular shapes of the focal points I have replaced them with die cut pieces.  The papers used are from MME and mainly from the Vanity Fair collection and I just love their muted colours.  So here is my card!

So you can see the large circle is represented by the bird house and the two smaller circles are represented by the birds.   My bow was replaced by the stamped greeting.

I have used double sided foam and distressing techniques to add dimension to the card front.

I also drew inspiration from DJ's card and used some embossed cardstock in the background. 
The dies used were from MFT Stamps    - The Homespun Birdhouse Set and the Branches with Leaves.
