Your tweet! card

Made a couple cards today.  I have decided to try and make a extra card when I can so I have a few around when I need one.  So here I made 2 but made a slight change in color on one just to keep it interesting.  I got a 6 piece die set of Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Circles awhile back and decided to give them a try.  I do like them for making a quick circle but I still rely on using my cricut for most cuts.  I bought a pack of Ebony & Ivory Core'dination colorcore cardstock last weekend and wanted to try this paper out also.  So I embossed the paper with birds & swirls cuttlebug folder and then sanded it with a fine sand paper to bring out the white underneath.  I am really liking this paper.  I used some Jilliebean soup twine to wrap around the paper with a yellow button.  The bird stamp is a wooden block stamp from Michael's dollar bins.  The your tweet saying is from a studio G stamp another dollar stamp.  Not sure where I picked it up at.  Believe it or not I used some plain ole bic markers to color the bird.  I liked how bright these markers were.  I do have some copic markers but only 11 of them and not the colors I wanted to use.  Some day I will have more.  I just add to my little stash of copics one at a time.  Here and there.
