My Fine Feathered Friends

Good morning to you all, in the land of blog
Today sees the next fabulous challenge at

the theme this week chosen by the very talented Andie is

Our Feathered Friends

Here is my Design Team Inspirational Piece
The base layer and contrast colour is a textured mint green card with Papermania Capsule Mono Collection yellow papers to contrast.  The circle is a small grand circle.  The image is from Mark's Finest Papers, one of my winnings.  The stamp around the edge of the image plate is from Secret Crafter Shop. The corners are Marianne dies. I have distressed the edges in Peel Paint distress ink, The ribbon, pearls and roses are from my stash. The image is coloured with copics using the cool, neutral, toner and warm greys to get the white shade.

Stunning background, but then I would say that, two reasons, one it's green and two it's distress inks!!!

Another great card to add to your ever growing collection xxx
