Birds Anniversary Card

Today my parents are celebrating 31 years together and I made them this card to celebrate.  I saw the design on the Cricut message board and added my own touch to it.

Materials needed for this project:
Card stock in white, blue, and pink, brown, green, black, and any kind of off white or gray patterned
Pink Distressed Embossing Powder, Embossing ink, and Hot Embossing tool.
"Happy Anniversary" stamp.
Glue, Terrifically Tacky Tape - 1/8", and Glue Dots.
Pebbles Inc. Chalk - used gray, brown, blue, pink, yellow, and green.
Imaginisce i-rock tool and Hot rocks compact - Crystal.
Silver pen
Martha Stewart edge punch
Cricut Carts - Sweethearts (everything on the front), Lacy Labels (inside sentiment).

I cut the white borders and used the Martha Stewart edge punch on them - I chalked the edges and then distressed them before gluing them onto the card.

For this card I had to cut the same image in both blue and pink and cut the blue bird out and glue him to the rest of the pink one.  I chalked the edges of each cut and glued them together.  I used a silver pain to add a stitch border to the birds.  I then glued everything to the heart.

I added the twine to the button and used tack tape to adhere it.

I used the i rock tool to attach all of the stones and glue dots to add the heart to the card.

For the inside - I stamped the sentiment and put embossing powder on it and used my Heat embossing tool on it.  I chalked the edges and glued it on.

What do you think?
