Joan's challege for the TLC was to use circles. I combined it with the last of the LoveFest challenges from TGF, to create a love-themed card with dies. I had to sneak a little heart punch in, but the rest is all dies. I think I'll keep this for our anniversary later on this year.
A2 base, Cryogen White with borders scored at 1/8" and 1/4".
Bazzill scraps, except for the circle which is white card sponged with Scattered Straw, and then embossed with Provocraft Floral Fantasy ef, simply because I knew it had hearts in it. I did start by colouring the heart with ink, but then it didn't quite match the little heart flowers on the branch, so I added another punched one.
Leafy Branch is from MFT, Perched Reed Bird is from Memory Box. I find, when cutting a pair, that running the cut pieces through the Wizard afterwards minimizes the difference caused by using one "wrong way" up. Normally I add beady eyes, but they didn't look good here.
Sentiment is from TCP.

Beautiful artwork here! Love all the die cuts placed just right and the cute hearts on the tree branches...and that detailed, scored border. Gorgeous!
