Happy Monday...Mission Accomplished!







I had a great time working on this challenge from Dawn McVey's blog and as you can see it has a multitude of elements and layers, six layers to be exact!

Here's the rundown:

I used the Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page 'Loop' punches, The Damask & Swiss Dots EF and Friends Forever Die Cut from Cuttlebug, Scallops Nestibilities by Spellbinders. The bird stamp is from The Paper Company and is 3-D layered. The bling on the bird's tail is created with fuschia flat sequins.

This card is going up for sale in my Etsy store and it won't be there long, so if you would like to have it for a special greeting for someone or for an example for your inspiration board, get over to Etsy ASAP!
