bird card

hi there card no 2
again used the free papers from hot off the press and the stamps that came with simply cards and papercraft, the papers are lovely very useable, followed the sketch from totally gorjuss, did some stitching on my machine, thought I needed to add some embelishment but did not know what, remembered I had seen a video on wild orchid crafts to make birds and butterflies, so went and watched it again and had a go, made the bird out of skeleton leaves coated with embossing powder, a bit messy because boy does the powder melt quick on the leaves had to do it twice because the powder kept melting off lol,cut out the shapes and edged them with glitter glue and then had to wait overnight till they dried, needed legs so drew them onto acetate with permenant marker assembled them with hot glue gun,colourd ribbon and lace with old paper distress ink, also distressed the papers and added some script stamp to the edges, not sure I will be making another but who knows angxxx thanks for looking
