MTME Pretty Pattern #12!

Wow, are we already on sketch twelve?  As they say, time flies when you're having fun.... well it's certainly true as far as these challenges go.  They are very fun indeed!

My Time Made Easy has a new release - it's all digi this time - check it out here!  

I used MTME's newest digi paper called Spring is Here. Isn't it gorgeous?!  I used one of their acrylic stamp set called Singing Silhouette.  I bought the acrylic because I love to stamp solid images (such as the birds, flowers and leaves) right into my different colors of ink.  It was a lot of fun!  I also enjoy embossing which can't be done when you print a digi image, but I did not do it on this project. 

(As always, click on photos to enlarge)

Here are some close-ups of the new paper that I used on my card:

Can you see the orange birds amongst the flowers?
 This pattern has vertical stripes of flowers.  The stripes just happened to be the right width to use with this sketch. What's great about digi paper is that you can resize the print and make it fit whatever project you are working on.  See?  I am becoming accustomed to using digi stuff.  ;)
My usual 3-d shot.  I like this photo.. it makes it look like the pearls are all lined up straight.  LOL
 Here are the love birds!  I don't have a pretty orange ink pad so I used a marker to color the orange bird's body.  I couldn't get the ink to come out smooth like the pink.  It looks like it has scratches on it.  Does anyone know what to do about that?
I hope you will join us and play along!  Just click on the sketch and it will take you there. 

Thank you all for coming by!  Please leave a little comment so I know you were here... and stop by the other Pretty Patterns design team members to see what they've come up with and leave them a little love too!
