Pretty Little Bird.

I've had this image coloured for months now.  It was coloured with copics but sorry, I have no idea which colours I used.  I wasn't sure what to do with this image until I saw this card by Marlies.  Absolutely perfect!! Thanks Marlies.   So I cased the layout but changed the punch border to lace and added some cheesecloth. The papers are different and of course my stitching isn't as good as Marlies.
I sponged the edges with distress ink and also stamped the edges with some edging stamps.  The papers are very old ones from Websters that I pulled out that matched the colours I used.  Flowers and lace are from my stash.
Thanks for visiting my blog and hope you like my card.
