A Bird for Three Challenges

Well it's Monday again and I should be tidying up after the weekend but hey, ho, thought I'd sneak this one in before I got out the hoover!

There are so many great challenges out there, it's difficult to find the time to join in with all the ones I'd like to, so today I've killed three challenges with one bird ....

Artful Times Challenge #2 - A Sea of Greens
Fashionable Stamping Challenges #20 - Embossing
Pan Pastel Challenge 15 - Add a Flower

I made a background with various distress inks, spritzed with Fireworks! Bamboo Leaves then stamped with a Stampin Up flower.






The bird cage is cut from some serendipity card (see post here), words are Paper Artsy embossed in gold onto vellum which I'd coloured with a Promarker, flowers and birds are Stampin Up punches, bling is coloured with a Promarker.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.
