Vintage Crafty Secrets Bird

Good morning everyone.  This card was my first attempt at the vintage look.  Linda Coughlin alias The Funkie Junkie was once again the source of my inspiration.  I used her sketch on this card but changed the elements, colour etc.  I was absolutely stoked with the way it turned out.  Once again, I hand dyed cotton crinoline and tulle with glimmer mists to make the flowers.  Tutorial on Linda's blog. The antique brads and safety pin are from Stampin' Up and I love them.
The cardstock is Stampin' Up and so are the papers except the music one which came from my stash.
This card has machine sewing on some of the layers and I'm quite proud that I managed to do it.
Before you ask, no I don't have this card anymore.  It too was snapped up very quickly.
Thank you once again for visiting.  Have a wonderful day.
