Birthday Tweetings - (CTD386)

Hello and happy Wednesday!  It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.
For my card, I used the fun My Favorite Things stamp set, Tweet Friends along with the coordinating dies.  I had so much fun making this card!  I adore anything with birds so you'll be seeing quite a lot of cards made with this set.  I started out my card with a white card base which I stenciled using the MFT's Diagonal Bars stencil and some peacock distress ink, then I added a white stitched rectangle which I stamped with my sentiment and two banners, one from tropical teal cardstock the other a strip of My Mind's Eye designer paper.  I should add that I used the MFT's sketch challenge from last week for my layout (it ended yesterday) because I liked it so much.  Next I die cut my birds and bird cage and colored them using Copic markers.  On two of the birds, I stamped them twice and colored and cut out just the wings so I could pop them up and give the birds some dimension.  I adhered the birds to the cage and popped up the whole piece using foam tape.  To finish off my card I added a few teal colored sequins, some white gel pen on my birds and some glaze pen to their eyes.
