MMSC39 & Pink Elephant Challenge 52

I feel like I have been MIA, between family and school. I have just been itching to get back to making cards.

I was waiting for a sketch with a heart as the main piece as I have had this cute little image from Phindy's Place colored for some time now. So when I saw this sketch on Lori's blog I checked it out and here is my entry for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 39 as well as for Pink Elephant Challenge 52 - All About Pink.

I tried a new technique for me and some of my new products, borderabilities and shapeabilities. I used the die cut themselves to stencil onto the image with a darker color chalk.
Stamp: Love Birds - Phindy's Place
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Whisper White and unknown DSP
Accessories: Assorted Leaves shapeabilities, Illumination Borderabilities, Regal Rose and Garden Green chalk, sponge daubers, ribbon and copics
Copics:

Flowers Rv02, RV04, RV06
Leaves YG63, G99
Branch E33, E35
Birds B32, B23
Beaks YR02, YR16
Vine YG63
Heart RV04, RV06
