My Minds Eye!

Between the beautiful box of goodies arriving and the super cute sketches at My Minds Eye, I was inspired to play along with My Minds Eye challenge #20!I created an anniversary card from My Minds Eye “be loved” line. I love the heart on the sketch, but going with the “love” theme, I couldn’t resist adding a couple love birds in place of the flower. The birds and leafy branches were cut using my Cricut Expression and the Create A Critter cartridge…I think those birds are just too cute! One of the advantages of the Expression, is the Flip button. I cut the same bird twice, but used “Flip” to cut the second bird. I also cut some of the branches/leaves using “Flip” in order to get the branches to sway in opposite directions! Pretty cool, huh! Stepping out of my comfort zone, I actually cut the heart and scallop by hand!
I attached the birds and little blue/green heart with popdots for dimension.
