Happy birdday

I think I dare to say that spring has finally arrived to my part of the world. With the sun out and the birds singing I got inspired to make a card with one of my newest (and soon to be favourite) sweetpea stamp. I just LOVE the birdtheme. The image I have here is called Peony and it's one of the newer ones by ching chou kuik. It's from plate 97.

The papers I have are from die cuts with a view Mariposa line. I got them from my sweetheart after his trip to the US :) Unfortunately the pics don't do the papers justice. They are very glittery and the birdcage background is in gold foil. As the papers were so beautiful I wanted to keep the layout simple and make them work with the image. After choosing the papers I coloured the image with promarkers to match. The text is handwritten. Oh, and I added some gold glitterglue to her flower to make it match the papers and stand out a bit.
