Anniversary Lovebirds

I made an anniversary card for my daughter and son-in-law today. Hearts and flowers are always in order for this type of card, so that's the theme.

I used a paper doily from a local restaurant (again!). These are such pretty doilies, that I asked the waitress where they get them. She said they are from Sysco, which is a restaurant supply company. I told her how pretty I thought they were, but that the one on my plate was kind of messed up. She offered to bring me some more and after being gone for a moment, returned with a little sack full of them!  Wow!  I am blessed!

On top of the doily is a Cricut heart cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. Two little birds with branches were punched from a Stampin' Up punch, then assembled and "glittered." A Spellbinders Ribbon Banner was die cut and the sentiment is by Our Daily Bread - Hyacinth. I made the card, but then decided it was a little too CAS, so more embellishments were added. Tell me which one you like the best!

Here is the first card:

So, roses from Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms were added along with some foliage from a Martha Stewart 5-Leaf Punch; tiny little red eyes were added to the birds with some liquid squeeze on paint. Here is the second card:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
