Quilted Anniversary Card

This card popped into my head this afternoon while I was having some "tv therapy"!  Our grandson, James, was supposed to be having his nap, but he decided today that would not happen.  He is so funny to listen to when he is supposed to be sleeping, all that talking to his Puppy and Monkey who keep him company in his bed.  Then there is the singing .......  I love it!
I have wanted to make one of the "Quilted" cards that are so popular right now, and this is what I came up with.  Both birds have rhinestone eyes, but for some reason the one on the right is not showing up.
Stamps:  Something To Celebrate (sentiment)
Ink:  Rose Red
Paper:  Springtime Vintage DSP
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight
Punches:  5 Petal Flower, Boho Blossom, 1/4" Circle, Double Circle (retired can use smallest eye part from the 2 Step Owl Punch), Itty Bitty Shapes circle, Scallop Oval, Large Oval, 2 Step Bird
Other:  Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestones
I hope you get a chance to try one of these cards soon.  All you do is assemble your entire card front, then run the whole thing through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  It looks quilted in real life.  I also made and put the flower on the sentiment through the embossing folder.  Then I added the rhinestones and put the sentiment on the front.
Hope you can come back soon, Happy Stampin' .....
