A Bird's Song

I knew I had to create with this image at McMahon Five Designs the minute I saw it..... I have discovered that I really enjoy Vintage images while designing for M5D....... (have you noticed???).
 It is called A Rose Song.

  I colored the image with Copic Markers and used some Prima Designer Papers and lace. I used a Spellbinders Picot Edge die under the image using DSP and I cut a Spellbinders beaded circle die using the DSP (pink and brown) - it is along the Lt side of the border- up and down.  I hand gathered the pink organdy ribbon in a Zig-Zag pattern:
 I added some pretty Zia Creative roses with a smidge of Stickles for shimmer.  Finally I added some pearls- I deconstructed one side and added them on in pieces.

 I wanted to quickly share a picture that will show you how I did that.......
  I like to play around and use my supplies in different ways...... I punched out the center with a 1 3/4" punch- you could just cut it with scissors though.....

Challenges:
Sisterhood of Crafters- Use a digi
Stamp N Doodles- Lace and flowers
Make My Monday- Victorian
Crazy Challenge- Use a die or a punch
PanPastelUK- Animal- (can you see the birds in the image?)
Stampin' Sisters in Christ- Must include a Flower


Thanks for stopping by!

I seen this on MFD and had to come over and say what a beautiful card. I have never seen something so beautiful. You do great with those copics. Wish I could get the hang of them. Amazing job.

this is a very clever thing you have done here - I have wrapped a straight border around a circle, but never the other way around!

The card is absolutely luscious - no wonder everybody wants you on their team!
