Say it with Flowers - New Challenge at Crafty Addicts #19

Morning Crafty Friends, hope you are having a lovely week! Mine has been so so, with things starting to break down or need replacing. First it was new tyres for the car at the weekend, now it's my fridge freezer playing up! Oh the joys!! Anyhoos, if you need something to cheer you up like me, we have a new challenge started over at Crafty Addicts. Our theme as always is anything goes or with a twist of 'Say it with Flowers' and our Sponsor is the fabulous 'A Day for Daisies'. For my DT inspiration, I used the image 'Pearls in my Hair'. Isn't she gorgeous?! 

My Project
Products Used
A Day for Daisies - 'Pearls in my Hair' image
ProMarkers - Soft Green, Tea Green, Sandstone, Caramel, Vanilla, Tan, Satin and Cool Grey 3
Copic Ciao - Skin White and Pinkish White
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card
Docraft's - 'Pocket Full of Posies' blue tartan backing paper
Tim Holtz - Birdcage die set
Britannia - Rose leaf die
DecoArt - Glamour dust glitter crystal 
Woodware - Corner punch
From My Stash - Gold and Gold glitter backing card, Blue flowers, blue paper, gems, pearls, ribbon and flower embellishments.

On a blank 8x8 white scalloped card blank, I layered together, corner punched, gold card and tartan paper. I then added the die cut birdcage and bird (coloured with promarkers), along with flower embellishments, leaves, gems and ribbon. I printed, coloured and added glamour dust glitter, then carefully cut out image, placing as shown. To finish off I added flowers and leaf die cuts!
