Wedding Anniversary Card

Well here goes another post.

Could get used to this posting business as it means I actually finish what I'm working on.
 
I prepared this post yesterday prior to our anniversary and added the photo today, just in case hubby of 15 years decided to check up on me.  LOL.

 
I really  wanted to try out the new Jo Firth Young stamps, the angry bird looking ones, as I think they are quite funky (in their own little way).
 
 I hunted out some left over pieces  of paper that everyone has, because you can't justify throwing them away, I'm sure you know what I mean.
 
I stamped the lovebirds, tree and leaves on the papers and cut them out. I placed them on the background paper to see approx where to stick them down and re-stamped the birds onto the background, I covered these images with a plain cut out bird of the same shape, so that when I re-stamped the  branches they would appear to go round the back of the birds.
 
 I paper pieced the branches and the birds (bodies and beaks) to the background images added the leaves  a little heart, stamped the lovebirds word in the corner and got the sewing machine out...
 
Love sewing things to cards however I think my machine is need of attention as the top tension isn't doing what it is suppose to. Anyhow stiched around the edge in green thread and mounted on a couple of pieces of coloured paper then on to a card blank. Added a stamped Happy Anniversary mounted with a bit of 3D foam and more papers.

Finished!!!

Just in time.
