Bird in Blossom......

This weeks challenge over at Make my Monday is Birds or Animals...
Most of the elements on my card are from Stampin Up except the frame which is a Spellbinders one and the Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
I embossed some cream and kraft card them distressed it with vintage photo Distress ink. Cut the nestie out and placed a rectangle nesties in the centre making the frame.  The music paper is also from Stampin Up, cut out the leaf die and just embossed the leaves a little bit and added some old olive ink to the leaved...punched out some small flowers then popped then in another S.U. embossing folder before making the little flowers..
.
Its another very wet day down here in Somerset.....will we ever see the sun again???

A stunning card Anne - so elegant and classy. Love the spellbinders frame and the way you have placed the music notes in the background. The SU bird and branch is one of my all-time favourites - it looks perfect here with the addition of the flowers.
It's wet wet wet here too - hope we all get some sunshine soon!

I love how you've embossed the tiny flowers Anne that's a really good technique I may have to give that a go.
