Together Always

Here we are again, my friends! Time for another Tuesday Throwdown challenge - a Card Recipe with 2s and Ts - an interesting twist! Our generous sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish. Here's what you have to do:

* Use only 2 colours of your choice, excluding neutrals and the colours of your focal image.  
(For my card, I picked shades of Pink and Brown. My focal image is called Love Birds by Robyn's Fetish.)


* Use 2 things starting with the letter T, eg Twine, Tags, Tabs.  
(I'm using Twine and Thread on my card.)


Use 2 different ribbons.  
(On my card, you'll see pink and chocolate gingham ribbons.)

I really had fun with this recipe. The image is so adorable and perfect for an upcoming anniversary of a young couple.

I made a 5" square card, using papers from Papermania's "Confetti" collection.

And here is that adorable image by Robyn's Fetish called Love Birds. I used  SN markers to colour the image:  Golden Browns for the nest, creamy Earth Browns for the birds and Pale Pinks for their hearts and bow. For cutting and layering I used Spellbinders Standard Circle and Heart Circle dies. 

I used pink Twine to tie little bows on my chocolate and pink gingham ribbons. And for my 2nd T, I'm using brown Thread to do all the stitching.  

Here's the inside. I used Memento Chocolate Brown to stamp that sentiment from the Fancy Phrases set by WMS. 

I'm taking my card to the following challenges: Paper Makeup Stamps #82 "Anything Goes with Digi"Eureka Stamps #33 "Stripe or Circles"Kaboodle Doodles #165 "Use 2 Different Papers"Stamp and Create April Challenge "Use At Least 1 Die Cut"Sparkle n Sprinkle Creative April Challenge "Use A Digi"Lexi's Creations #87 "Punches and / or Dies"Glitter n Sparkle #26 "Cute" and Catered Crop "Twine Love Recipe Swap".
