Good Times Together

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge March 16 - #247 Bye, Bye Birdie  and Heart 2 Heart Challenge March 16 - Green with Envy.  I chose the image "Bird With Nest" from the Nate's ABC's Cricut cartridge. Decided to do something a little different this time and used ShinHan pens instead of the many colored layers of the image. Made two different sizes, one slightly bigger than the other, sync'd them to one color for all pieces.  Used all the pieces from the larger image, but then in the smaller image just used the Bird and a couple of leaves.  Placed the smaller bird behind the larger bird and placed him on the top branch and did some modification to the branch.  Using the ShinHan pens allow different shades/blends of color instead of flat colored cardstock...
Using 3D Thin Foam Tape pulled the front branch out away from the branch in the back to give it some depth between the birds.  The small butterflies were an image from "Cricut Craft Room Basics" cut in several glitter paper colors, bent the wings up a little and then used glue dots to secure them on the card.  The main background is from "Blossom" Paperpak, and the Sentiment was the Tab from one of the papers.  The border was from Paper Fundamentals "Adventure" pear color.
