Crafty Secrets Anniversary Card for Mom & Dad

Running with a late night post but here is the anniversary card as promised from the previous post. Yesterday was my Mom & Dad's wedding anniversary--Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!! I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out!! Both my mom & dad are really big into gardening and they love birds so I knew this combination of flowers and birds would be perfect! They also have tons of lilacs--one of my personal favorite flowers. The DP, Vintage Image and the Flourishes stamp are all from Crafty Secrets. The DP with the beautiful lilacs is from the Radiant Paper Pad. I inked the edges with black ink and then stamped the flourishes from the Cherubs stamp set with the same black ink. I also added Diamond Stickles from ranger to the flourishes.I used the Martha Stewart Bird Punch to punch out two birds with Heritage Black CS from WolrdWin and added foam tape to the back to give them some dimension. The vintage image with the sentiment is from the Joys of Life Heartwarming Vintage Booklets. I inked the edges with black ink and added a little Diamond Stickles from Ranger on the lilacs. All of the CS is from WorldWin, I used Dark Perfect Plum and Heritage Black. To finish off the card I added a sheer light plum ribbon and some rhinestones.
