So Happy Together

Okay, I made this cute little card and it is for 4 different challenges.

First up is the Unity challenge to use birds!
Second, is Wee Memories challenge to paper piece.
Next is Here Come The Boys challenge which is Anything Goes (as long as it is suitable for a male).
Lastly, I wanted to enter the Color Throwdown challenge (I love their colors). But the problem is that their colors are pink, brown, light blue and kraft. But since this is for a male I kinda changed the pink to an orangey color. I probably shouldn't enter, but I'm gonna try anyway because some of the DT cards up on their site don't exactly match either. : )

I thought it would be nice to create a card I can give to my husband just to say I love you!
The birds and sentiment are Unity stamps from the Happyville set.

 Here are the cute little pieced birds. I had to stamp them 5 times, once as the base and 4 times on each of the different papers. This is actually my first time paper piecing! I like it.

 The sentiment is punched with my SU label punch, but I wanted it framed so I hand cut the kraft and brown frames behind it. Then added some I-rock bling.

 Beautiful cappuccino twine.

And the inside.
