Love Birds

this is a fun yet simple card I created using a Polly Craft Free Digital Stamp.I have never used one of their Digital Stamps.. so this was a first for me and was SOO much fun.. and I have to say I love this image.. I also used their fun Challenge that they have goin on.. Fire and Ice.. the colors RED and WHITE.. so this is what I came up with..

I colored the image using copic markers, I then added white puffy paint to our little birds, the fence hearts, the flowers on the grass and the dots on my lolly pop flowers too.. the brand I love the most is Scribbles 3d paint it has a really fine tip and I get mine from Joann fabric store when they have them 2 for $1 you can't beat that..
I placed a ribbon on top of the card and sewed the ends to hold it down.. I single stitched, and zig zag stitched around the image.. I placed a fun square button on the lolly pop flower.. Distressed this bad boy and Volia.. this was such a fun card to create..
