Jaye and Feather Friends

Good morning everyone, the weather is still a bit of a mix up. I'm hoping it settles down to a proper Summer soon. 
I have this 8"x 8" card to show you today using an image from one of my favourite artists, Norma J Burnell. I kept the card quite simple as I didn't want to detract from the gorgeous image or the lovely paper.
I thought this paper from Graphic 45's Botanical Tea was a perfect match for the stunning image and matted it onto royal blue card. I wrapped around some thin silk ribbon before fixing to the card base.

This beautiful image is called Jaye and Feather Friends and is available from Sweetpea Stamps in either digi or rubber. I bought the digi version and coloured it with a mix of Copics and Flexis. I used Pan Pastels around the image before fixing onto a blue mat.

I die cut some feathers and tied a triple bow with the silk ribbon.

The card was finished off with three little wooden birds.
I'm entering this card in the Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans Group Progressive Challenge on Facebook. If you have any Sweet Pea stamps don't forget to ask to join the group so you can share your projects.
