Sister Birthday Card

Hi everyone!  Here is a card that I created for my sister Melanie, whose birthday is this Friday!    I made the card following the Throwback Thursday challenge at My Creative Time.  The challenge this time was to create a project using a frame from any Cricut cartridge.
The frame I chose is from Lovely Floral and it was cut at 5.5".
The birds on the branch were cut at 2.5"
The word "sister" and the shadow were cut from the Sophisticated cartridge at 1".

The card background was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder from the Paper Lace II companion set.
I added some lace to the bottom of the frame, then spritzed some large white roses with Tiffany's Blue Starburst Spray.  The small flowers were also white, and I coloured the edges of the petals with a yellow copic marker.  I also added some tiny pearls for the birds' eyes

Other products used:
Cardstock - Core-dinations, CTMH
Patterned Paper - DCWV
Lace - My Mind's Eye
Starburst Spray - Lindy's Stamp Gang
Flower Bling - Kaiser Craft
Pearls - Stampin' Up!
Flowers - Pretty Petals

Hope you like it!
