Free as a Bird

'Free as a Bird'  is the theme of  the challenge for May over at Crafty Individuals I am in awe of the fabulous creations that can be seen over there.
For  my card  I used   CI 180  bird stamp. It is a minor miracle I still had the original package.
I think the frame may be a CI one but am not entirely sure. One of the  layers  is fine corrigated paper ,  another was embossed with a tree bark pattern, both were coloured with Tea dye distress ink. I used a crackle stamp on the frame before colouring with Antique linen DI. The main image got the cosmic shimmer paint treatment. Once again my new favourite flower stamp by Joanna Sheene has had an outing, some card candy and charms complete my  piece. Not sure as yet if it will be a card or a hanging.

The current challenge  No14 over  at Lets Ink it Up  is Embellish It,  so I hope I have added enough extras to fit the theme. There are  fantastic examples  to inspire there as well.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate the comments you leave
