Botanica Beauty

New paper alert!  I snapped these up when Craftwork Cards had one of their flash sales on a few selected paper packs; I'd been eyeing up this stunning Botanica stack up for a while, and at 40% off with free p+p it would have been rude not to!
 The digi stamp is from Saturated Canary, I coloured her with Pro and Flexmarkers, she was a joy to colour, especially her hair.  I added a touch of colour to the edge of the topper with some Milled Lavender Distress Ink, and created a border with lilac Liquid pearls.
The flowers at the bottom of the card and all the little birds (can you spot all five!) were all fussy cut from the paper pack, the only other embellishments I needed were a couple of stick pins, some clear gems and a Craftwork Cards sentiment which reads "Absolutely Fabulous".

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Glitter 'n' Sparkle - #84 - Female 
Suzy Bee's - #28 - Flowers
Alphabet Challenge - G for Gorgeous Gowns
QKR Stampede - #87 - Anything Goes + Use Gems
4 Crafty Chicks - #193 - Flowers
Fab 'n' Funky - #215 - Pretty Hair

House of Cards - May #1 - Inspiration Photo - As soon as I saw the photo it reminded me of these papers, I've used the colours, with the addition of pink, and the bird theme. - Shabby / Vintage
Digi Makeover - #139 - Anything Goes with a Digi
Love to Create - #114 - Say it with Flowers
