Sparkle Birds - MTME Pretty Pattern Sketch #35

Hello and happy Thursday.  It's time for another My Time Made Easy Pretty Pattern Sketch challenge.

This week's challenge incorporates two half circles with the sketch.  For my card this week, I chose to pull out my acrylic Singing Silhouette stamp set along with the Cheerful Chirps digital paper.

I started out by stamping the birdcage twice in memento tuxedo black ink onto white card stock and then stamping two of the birds using PTI enchanted evening and scarlet inks sitting them on the swing in the cage.  Once that was done, I cut out one birdcage for popping up on pop dots later and started layering before lightly stippling Stampin Up! not quite navy ink around the edges of the main image panel.  Now it was time for my half circles.  Since I wanted two different colors, I hand cut them out (as if you couldn't tell) instead of using a die or coluzzel and then added some Joann metal dot sticklers.  My final touch was adding platinum ice stickles to the top of the birdcage and along the edges for highlighting.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
