Birdhouse and Vines

We have another challenge for you

The sponsor this time is 

I have used this image
'Birdhouse and Vines'
and tried to convey an' Edwardian Lady'  style card.

The backing paper is by Raspberry Road.
I have coloured the image  using promarkers 
and silver gel pen.
The hessian embellishments, lace and square pearls are from The Works.
The bead trim  came from a local market stall, gems from my stash.

The ovals were cut using an Xcut die set.
I  had just enough of the paper over to trim inside 
with more lace and a hessian butterfly.
Stamp is by Crafty Individuals and one of my favourites.

As always the challenge is anything goes.
Please pop over to the blog and see what 
my team mates have created just for you. 
You have a week in which to enter
and we would be delighted to see you.
