Happy Anniversary Birds

Hello, again!  As promised, I'm back with another card inspired by Tuesday Morning Sketches 500th Sketch


The beautiful bird image is from Gecko Galz The Art of Nouveau Collage Sheet, and I mounted it on black cardstock.  The fancy floral die is a Crafter's Companion Fancy Die'sire Edge'able.  This die has been in my stash for a long time and this is the first time I've used it.  The stitching along the edges of the turquoise strip is from MFT Die-namics Basic Stitched Lines.  I stamped an Anniversary greeting and finished off the card with some black sequins.

I was inspired by the following 5 challenges:
Carlin's Kaartenparadijs Bird and Photo Inspiration 3/3
Gecko Galz Customer Challenge Nouveau Garden UE The Outlawz Festive Fridays Anniversary 2/4
Tuesday Morning Sketches Sketch 500 3/3



Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

Wow you did Tuesday Morning Sketch proud - love this and the snowman as well as your bunnies. I just love a well-designed vintage layout as it doesn't need much to be right. You've achieved it here. The overall look pops! Great GG image, of course I have a dozen GG bird sheets but not this one, lol. That why she in biz I guess, lol. I will make do with what I have but I will pout a bit - hahaha xoxo

Beautifully coordinated colors to match those of the birds. A lovely anniversary card, it does fit the occasion, but other occasions as well, it’s all up to your choice of sentiment. Great take on the sketch.
