Tweet Friends

Happy Friday!  It's been a long week and I'm looking forward to the weekend, how about you?  Today I'm sharing another card that I created using the new My Favorite Things Tweet Friends set.
I used the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #230 for my layout and the Colors from this week's Colour Queen Challenge #335, I'm also entering my card in the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.  My card is pretty simple and straight forward, I die cut the bird cage using the Cheerful Cages Die-namics then die cut the birds and colored them using Copic markers using a white gel pen to add some white dots for detail.   After that I used the MFT Diagonal Bars stencil and sponged on some berry sorbet ink on a panel of berry sorbet cardstock, only stenciling the upper middle portion of my panel.  Then I stamped my sentiment onto a strip of aqua mist and added a horizontal strip of tropical teal, then my bird cage and birds popping up the larger bird with foam tape.  As a final detail I added some teal sequins.
