Vintage birds - and there is glitter, I promise!

Happy Thursday! I made this card for the Hero Arts "glitter" Challenge this week. I am not the "heavy glitterer" but I love some subtle bling...

I hope you can see the mica when enlarging the photo, I used Rock Candy distress stickles on the flowers, the ornament, the birds and the edges of the card! I got a bit carried away with my sewing machine, but it doesn`t look that bad now that all the embellishments are on :) I really have to make a lightbox soon, the gloomy light is not great for taking photos of my cards - and I think the light won`t improve over winter...

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by today!

Hugs,
Vanessa
