Wanda *Day 2*

Here's our next inspiration card by Wanda: Such a charmer! I love all of the vintage layers on this cute card. The vintage bird, flowers, torn paper, flourish background...they are just so sweet! I also love the way Wanda has added the sentiment on the torn and layered pieces of paper.
Here is my take. I was especially inspired by the vintage bird piece on Wanda's card:

And that beautiful bird stamp is another digi image from Tiffany Doodles.
**Edited to add: I'd had a few questions on how I colored the bird. It was printed with black ink on white cardstock and I colored the bird using prismacolor colored pencils. I then distressed the entire piece using brushed corduroy distress ink. The script was stamped using brushed corduroy distress ink the flourish was stamped using pumice stone distress ink. The green background also began as white cardstock and was colored using forest moss distress ink.**
Thanks for visiting!
