A little birdie...

Good morning everyone!
Just a quick post today to show you a birthday card that I made with this adorable
Paper Pretties image and sentiment!
It's colored with Copics and I printed an extra image so I could pop up the bird and a couple of the flowers with foam tape... I also lightly sponged in a few clouds.  The bg is embossed with a woodgrain folder, the dp is from Authentique and I used the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser tool to rough up the edges.  I used a MFT die for the fishtail flags and the cork flowers were cut with the Cuttlebug Asterisks die... added my pearls and there you have it!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
