PTI Anniversary Festivities- Day 1: DT Inspiration

I'm back with another card in celebration of 8 years of PTI goodness! I plan on participating in all of the challenges but at my own pace (before the deadline, of course) and out of order! Day 1 is all about deriving inspiration from the design team, this is the color scheme and sketch I chose:

 And here is my take on it, using my lovely Songbirds stamps and dies:
 I inked up the bird on the left with Raspberry Fizz and then used the rock-n-roll technique, using Memento Lady Bug (a red similar to Pure Poppy). The leaves were inked up with Pear Tart and once again for added depth and interest rolled into Bamboo Leaves (both also from Memento as a replacement for the PTI colors).
 This "love" sentiment was die cut from Raspberry Fizz cardstock using a Carta Bella die. The two panels were popped up with dimensional adhesive on to a Simply Chartreuse card base, which was accented with stitching using my Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles die set. The enamel dots were the perfect finish!

 On the birds, to add even more depth and interest I took a deeper green colored pencil and added some shading to the leaves and a white gel pen accented the flower on the buyer bird. Well that's it...thanks for stopping by and spending a portion of your day with me!
