You're Tweet! My Thoughts Exactly Puns Challenge!

The weekend is here, which for me means I have some time to craft!  My niece will be turning 18 in a couple days - I can't believe it!  She looks 12 to me!  :)  I made this 'Tweet' card for her birthday and thought I would use some of my 'My Thoughts Exactly' stamps since they are adorable just like my niece.  I am entering this card into the August MTE challenge which is puns! 

I made a pocket on my card.  It was really simple to do, I just made the card longer, then scored the card where the two folds would be. 

To go into the pocket, I made these really cute tags with the focus being the sweet sayings on them - You're Tweet, Super Sweet, and Happy Bird-day.  I decided to make them each very colorful.  My niece is a very talented artist, and she loves color!

I used lots of supplies from my stash for this card - see the list below:
Paper - My Minds Eye "Dolled Up" collection
Cardstock - Recollections
Sentiment Stamps - My Thoughts Exactly "The Birds and the Bees" set
Crinkled Ribbon - Prairie Bird Boutique
Flowers and Gems - Creative Charms
Twine - The Twinery
Tags & Bird Dies - Sizzix
Scallop Border Punch - Stampin' Up!
Scoring Board

I will be giving this card to my niece on Tuesday night.  I hope she likes it!  :)
