Curtain Call Challenge

Hi, today the design team from Peachy Keen Stamps has been asked to join in on the fun and create projects for the Curtain Call Challenge based on the following picture.

So here is what I came up with:

For the little bird and the sentiment, I used PKS: Happy Bird and Phrases. I stamped and paper pieced the main body of the little bird. I cut out the legs using the Cottage Cutz Happy Bird Die. I outlined the bird with a Copic marker and a white gel pen. Then I chalked his cheeks with Pebbles chalk ink

I stamped the sentiment on a die cut from My Creative Time. The doily, banner, leaves, and the 4x4 square are also from MCT. 

I cut the flower out using a Spellbinders die. I inked the edges with Heidi Swapp Coral ink. Then I added some Glossy Accents to the petal tips and then added some clear glitter. It is hard to see but I added a large white pearl to the center of the flower.
