Card Patterns Sketch 67 - Vintage Birds

Today's card is based on sketch 67 from the Card Patterns blog. Instead of stamping I printed out a vintage picture of birds that I got from the The Graphics Fairy - If you haven't already discovered the wonders of The Graphics Fairy, I suggest you go there now and be prepared to stay awhile - there are endless pics to delight you!!
There's lots of dimension and texture on this card and a touch of shimmer too courtesy of A Muse Robin's Egg Shimmer Couture paper. The colors I chose (white, light blue and light kraft - with a bonus if you added birds) are part of a challenge too - Lucy's Cards - Challenge 11: Colour. I love it when I can combine two challenges into one card!
