Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - May 2013 - Birds of a Feather

Another month has come around and it's time for another challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog.  This month the topic is "birds of a feather".  You don't have to use a Sweet Pea Stamps digital or rubber stamp image but we love to see them.
For my card I have used the Ching Chou-Kuik Sweet Pea Stamps image called "White Peacock Dryad".  I have used a rubber stamp image but this image is now available as a digital image.  I have gone for spring-like colour scheme.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and white gel pen.  I have cut around the image and done some faux stitching.  The backing papers I have used are from a recent win and they are from Cedar Chest Designs.  They are from the set called Moroccan Mix and Baby Stripes.  I have inked all the edges of the papers with a blue chalk ink pad.  I have finished the card off with some frayed muslin, lace, sparkly flower, Craftwork Cards sentiment, resin flower, blue die-cut butterfly, feathers, Papermania Glitterations, little die-cut bird and my new Memory Box  Vintage Bird Cage die (I've been looking for a bird cage die for such a long time but they have always been too big.  This one is perfect that I got from Teresa at My Crafty Heart as it is 1.2" by 2.4").

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Allsorts - Add some sparkle
