Bird on a Wire

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Follower and Visitors

Happy Monday to you all, I hope you all have a fabulous week.

I am so enjoying being here in Florida with my pal Deb!
I have been to Michael's, Jo Ann's and already posted a parcel home of crafty goodies!

Went to the beach on Saturday and swam in the sea, the sand is amazing, the sea so clear. Plans to go again on Tuesday.

I love Elisabeth Bell's images and this one is a topper from Hobby House.

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 white square card which I have matted and layered papers from LOTV Country Lady paper pack.
2. I then matted and layered the reverse of the papers horizonally and layered over with cream lace.
3. I distressed around the image with DI vintage photo and matted and layered with foam pads.
4. Using cream pearlescent card I cut out the birds on a wire.
5. To finish of I added 3 stamens a rose distressed with vintage photo and red roses, in the centre of the large flower I added a small dragonfly.

Many thanks for your visits and continued support.
