Pink Card with Pearls and Birds

Two pink cards in a row! For this one I've used an image from A Day for Daisies. This woman with birds is one of my favorite images. I colored it with Promarkers, then added Old Paper Distress ink on top. For the pearls in her hair I used glossy accent.

The pink background is embossed  with a cherry blossom embossing folder, and the border of kraft with a folder with script. The pink paper with spots came free with a magazine.

I've used quite a few dies too. The corners, decorative leaves and scalloped circle are made with Spellbinder dies, the birds with a Memory Box die and the tag with a Go Kreate die. I've also used some flowers, pearls, jute and pink ribbon as well as 2 punched butterflies.
The sentiment says "Thank You" in Norwegian and is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #15 Photo (2nd entry)
2) Eclectic Ellapu - Put a Tag on it
3) Great Impressions - Pastel Colours and/or Polka Dots
4) Sentimental Sundays - Tag you are It
5) The Squirrel & the Fox - Inspired by a Song/Movie (Movie "The Birds")
6) Allsorts - #202 Letter of Your Name (Pink and Pearls)
7) ABC Challenges - 1-2-3 (1 image+2 punched butterflies+3 die cut birds)
8) Digi Makeover Challenge - Girly
9) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Love everything about this card...That image is so delightful...I am going to pop over there to check it out. Little Miss C loves to go to the park her Mum works at as there is a wetland bird conservation area. They have guided tours through and the walkers learn about the birds. At certain times of year, the chickadee population is high and if you are quiet and very, very papient you can pput out your hand with bird seed on it and they will light on your hand and eat it! She has had this happen several times...she also will sit for half and hour with her hand out and has had butterflies land on her hand.
I would love to make her this card for her birthday...i would make the sentiment that the chickadees say Happy Birthday!!!

Your card is so gorgeous...that pink and kraft together is wonderful and I love the little die cut birds you added...gorgeous!
