Be as a Bird

This week in honor of the weekly challenge, Inspired by Flowers, I thought I would share this card.  To make this card, I started with my green cardstock and die cut a circle window in the front. I adhered a white panel to the inside of the card. Using stamps from Great Impressions, I stamped the Bird in Roses on the white panel to show through the window. The sentiment was also stamped on white cardstock, die cut, and outlined with gold marker. I dry embossed the front of the card with an embossing folder, added lace tape, adhered the sentiment,  and added the paper flowers and the bow. The image was painted with CI paints -- sky blue, tutu pink, pumpkin, sage and canary. All of the paper flowers were painted with canary and pumpkin. This gave the dull look of the flowers a nice shimmer and also helped them to match the bow.
