Birds and Blooms

Just a quick Sunday morning post...I had time to stamp a card early this morning for several challenges. Today's featured stamper on SCS is Barb Anders, and Casing one of her beauties is what got me started.
And today is also when the Stamping Sister's in Christ challenge for the week is announced. This week's challenge was taken from the verse:
Mark 10:7-9
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and will be united to his wife, and the two will be one flesh..."
The challenge given was to use 2 of whatever you used on your taking inspiration from Barb Ander's card, I used 4 (hey that's 2 of 2, right) of the scalloped squares and then 2 birds, and 2 flowers...I liked the image of love blooming...that was my thought. But then after I made this card, I had to laugh, because it looks like the mama bird is chirping away at the papa bird and isn't that the way it sometimes is...yak, yak, ...better than squawk squawk!!
Also, this week over on Crazy 4 Challenges blog the challenge is to make a Valentine themed there is my heart chipboard covering my assorted ribbons!
So 3 challenges and I hope you're not too confused reading this.

For my stamping recipe:
Stamps: SU Cheep Talk, SU En Francais (chipboard heart)
Inks: SU Purely Pomegranate, SU Chocolate Chip
Paper: PTI white, SU pink pirouette, SU chocolate chip, Basic Grey Urban Prairie
Accessories: Chipboard Heart, White craft paint, Assorted ribbons, Scalloped Square Nestabilities, SU Stitched Felt Sweet Pea

Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you like my untraditional Valentine...I actually like this one pretty well!
Have a blessed Sunday!
