Inspired By All the Little Things #78

Today, I have a card to share for 
Inspired By All the Little Things #78:

I was inspired by the colours, the quatrefoil patterns on the background of two 
cookies and the sweet little birds.
I decided to use my Papertrey Ink Spring Woods stamp set to make my card:

I tried to add some texture to my background by inking up a stencil with versamark
and pressing it onto my white panel.
This didn't really work the way I envisioned, but nevertheless, I heat embossed it
with white embossing powder.
It's very faint and hard to see in the photo.
I blended Altenew Frosty Pink ink over it and spritzed on some Cotton Candy ink
mixed with water.

 I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Spring Woods) in versamark onto a strip of grey 
cardstock and heat embossed it in white.
I stamped the bird and branch images onto their coordinating diecuts in 
Altenew Morning Frost, Cotton Candy, Coral Berries, Evening Grey and Frosty Pink,
as well as PTI Green Parakeet.

Visit Inspired By All the Little Things to see the rest of the DT's takes 
on the inspiration photo and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Friday, February 2nd to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!

Very springy and sweet take on the picture, Leigh! Love the soft and pretty background - I'm sure it looks more beautiful in real life. Hideko

Too bad we can't see the embossing, Leigh, because I imagine it's as beautiful as the pink inked background. The bird looks so sweet perched there on the branch.
