Framed Lattice

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a fun creative weekend. Lots of good food and good friends. I think I ate too much though. I should have been at a dog show. But as it turned out we weren't able to go. So I did the best I knew how and managed to make more fun!
The challenge over at Joan's is Framed Lattice. Here is the link... http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2012/08/this-weeks-challenge_23.html
The requirements for this challenge is...
framed lattice background
any type of flowers
a bird
a vertical greeting
Here is my card...
 I had to think out of the box on this one. I used the Cheery Lynn lattice die. Now I needed to frame my die. I decided to use a cheery lynn oval die. I was going to cut the lattice away around it, but decided it looked better framed out this way. My flowers were created using a spellbinder rolled flower die and a memory box rolled flower die. I added diamond dust to the centers. Under the flowers I used a leaf die from memory box and a pearl sprig. Yes I love those pearl sprigs. The bird is a partial La Blanche image that was stamped on La Blanche paper and colorized using copic markers and Tim Holtz distressed ink. The bird was then cut from the scene. I popped him up with a spring that you can see in one of the lower photos. So he kind of flutters above the card. I stamped the word faith on the side and went over it with a black spica marker so it sparkles just a wee bit. Three rhinestones top this card off.
 This is a view of my bird perched on the spring.

Thanks for another wonderful challenge Selma and Joan. It's always such fun. I really look forward to creating each week for the challenge.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Lovely Miss Lori. I so like the rolled flowers. I usually tear mine. But would like to try one that has been cut with nice edges. Beautiful colors on all pieces.
