SOS74 - Birthday Cardinal

Good morning! It's Tuesday and that means another challenge at Shopping Our Stash - this week we have a fun one for you - it's called Out of the Jar: you can use anything that came in a jar (flower soft, glitter, perfect pearls, embossing powder, etc.,)  OR a jar image - or make something using a Jar! (decorate it)

I started with image from Spring Cardinals PreCut Set from Heartfelt Creations, colored it with Prisma pencils and embossed it all with clear embossing powder (it came from a JAR) . Then I made a frame using Spellbinders Labels. Placed it on the colored image and sponged the inside with Tumbled Glass distress ink. Then I stamped Tim Holtz background stamp over it in Broken china.. I wish I had some Heartfelt Creations background stamp, but I don't...
Flower was cut out with Posy Patch Dies from Heartfelt Creation and I added fold microbeads in the middle (these were in a JAR too) :)

Challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday - no rules (just stamp)
The Crafty Pad -animals
The Stamp Man - butterflies,birds and bees
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - birthday card

Oh wow, I love that cardinal! Absolutely gorgeous against the bright blue (my current favourite Distress ink) and that lovely layered flower! Great idea to use microbeads in the centre :)
