Little Birdie

Today I broke out my new Tim Holtz paints and they are so much fun!  I used them on my card with a blender on some stencils I made on the Cameo.

Here's a closeup of my handmade paper.  You can see I added some glitter to the flower centers.  The main part of the paper was rubbed with TH's Spun Sugar stain but it's hard to see.

I used Mariska's Sketch at Friday Sketch Challenge #45.  You can do so much with this one!
