A Midnight Starfruit Bird

Good morning all.  I've based this card on two challenges:  Just Add Ink #121 - Add Pearls and Friday Mashup #62.

The card base is Summer Starfruit card stock (I REALLY, REALLY like this color).  Comfort Cafe designer paper was matted with Summer
Starfruit card stock and added to the Cajun Craze layer.  Two pieces of Victoria Crochet Trim were added and the whole layer added to the card.  The bird from the Language of Friendship stamp set was heat embossed with VersaMark, Midnight Muse ink, Summer Starfruit ink and clear embossing powder.  The bird and wing were colored with Midnight Muse ink, Summer Starfruit ink and blender pens.  It was then punched out with the Bird Builder PunchNaturals Ivory card stock was punched on all four corners with the Corner Punch and matted with Summer Starfruit card stock.  The sentiment from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set was stamped on the image layer with Cajun Craze ink.  This layer was then added to the card with dimensionals.  The bird was attached with dimensionals.  The flowers from the Language of Friendship stamp set were heat embossed with VersaMark, Cajun Craze and clear embossing powder and punched out with the Boho Blossoms Punch.  The small flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack was used to punch out a flower from Summer Starfruit card stock.  I centered it on the Cajun Craze flower with a glue dot, attached a Gumball Green stem from the bird punch and added it to the card with a dimensional.  Pearls were added to the crochet trim, the bird's eye and the center of the flower.  That's my card for today.  Thank you for stopping by.
