Love Birds, giveaway alert, and a video

**** Scroll down to see my Artful Delight/Betty Bee's Buzz post! :) ****

Hello all! Today I am showing you a card that I made with my Gypsy. I made this card for the Imaginisce paper piecing challenge. Play along this month and you could win $75 worth of Imaginisce products!!! Simply make a project using 75% of Imaginisce product and incorporate paper piecing somewhere. Link it up to the challenge post and you never know! :)  

The inspiration for this card actually came from My Pink Stamper's Love-alicious stamp called "Love Birds". I then knew I wanted to make a shape card with the bird house found on Cheerful Seasons. Next, I looked through all of my cartridges with birds and still liked the ones on Cheerful Seasons. So I choose those and went to work on my Gypsy! 

Creative Memories: Cheerful Seasons Cartridge™
Paper: Imaginisce: Enchanted "Happy Ever After"(light blue birds), Imaginisce: Animal Crackers: "Hot Buttered Popcorn" (blue) and "Come one! Come all!" (red)
Cardstock: Core'dinations (brown), Paper Trey Ink (marigold), and Colorbox (white base and wingtips)
twine from Jillibean Soup

Here is a video of me putting the card together. :)

If you would like the Gypsy file and have the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons Cartridge, then just email me at and I will happily send it over! :) Don't forget that you need the cartridge in order to cut the file from the Gypsy. 

Hop on over to the Imaginisce Blog to see what everyone else has come up with for your inspirational pleasure! Leave a comment there today where you could win an i-rock goodie package!!!

Very cute Court! I am on the market for a new embossing tool as mine broke - I had never seen that one before & shall have to look into it. I love your color choices for this :)
