Things with wings

This week's challenge at Catch the Bug is THINGS WITH WINGS.

The image is Jacobean Bird 1 and I colored it using peach, coral and green Promarkers.
I die cut a bird cage (Poppy) and heat embossed it to give it a metllic finish.
I heat embossed "Just a note" onto musical noted vellum and added flowers and lace.
I'd say it's not a typical card for me, but I'm trying to go for for feminine and use up some of the gorgeous flowers I've got in my stash. I got myself a glue gun, it's a must to get them stuck.

This card is also for:
Craft Rocket Challenges
- #79 Use Dies and/or Spring
Passion For Markers Challenge
- #582 Soft Finishes (Use ribbon, lace, burlap, muslin, twine..)

This is just gorgeous! Love the image and a great idea to heat emboss it to get that metallic look. The lace is fab on top of the birdcage and I love how you've added the sentiment onto the vellum. Thanks for sharing at Passion for Markers this week. Hugs, Karen x

Gorgeous card Pia, like the feminine look, it's good to go out of our comfort zone. Like the flowers, ribbon and yellow along with your beautiful coloring.
