Vintage Two Birds Anniversary or Wedding Card

I have the privilege of designing cards for Sami's Stamps and i just love her images.  This card was created using her image called Two Birds found here or here. (if you don't see it request it from Sami)

I think i just realized, that her images allow me to do "pretty" cards..normally (if you look at my blog) i do "cute" and i love cute..i think i can combine my style with cute and pretty for the first time.

I made this card with some vintage buttons that i had purchased over 15 yrs ago at an antique mall.  I also found the cotton lace at a charity shop.  The heart die is a Nellie Snellen multi frame heart die and the small buckle is a Spellbinders die, the background eyelet square is from Lifestyle Crafts frame 8.

Here is my card:
I added a white feather to the bottom left along with some small flowers from Wild Orchid.  The pearls are from Michaels and the embossing in the background is an Anna Griffin embossing folder.

Copics used:
E50, 51, 53, 55
breast- E02, 11
beak/feet- YR12, E71
branch- E71
