When Two Comes as One

Since I got into Spellbinders' Bird Sanctuary recently and using thick shoebox cardboard to cut,
I wanted to do do put two birds together as one.
So when I saw the latest Retro Sketches rs#26, I jumped right into it.  I knew what I wanted to do.
The sketch is simply elegant.

I cut a section off BoBunny noteworthy die-cut and placed it on a cream card,
tied a dark brown grosgrain ribbon and mounted it on a brown cardbase.
With two birds cut out using the Cuttlebug, I inked the edges slightly.
Glued the two birds together (one image in reverse)
and mounted them on the card.

Simply elegant and good for an engagement card, a wedding card or an anniversary card.
Sentiment?  A simple Congratulations would be fine.

This card is also for 365 Cards Day 174 ~ Surprise Inside.
The surprise is what the Chinese traditionally give ~
an angpow or red packet filled with money.

initial card
modified with 3 jewels
 And I added 3 jewels to make it for Less is More Week 82 Recipe 3-2-1
with 3 jewels, 2 birds and 1 die-cut.
Hope it counts this time as my earlier submission was rejected as it was not CAS enough.
