Happy birthday, Sharyne

It is my friend Sharyne's birthday today, and I actually made 3 cards for her before I was happy with one to send to her! This is the winner ;)
I started with the sentiment from Hero Arts, and then sponged Distress Ink using a stencil and added strips of peachy coloured cardstock. It still looked a bit bare, so I went through my stash of little embellishments and found this darling little wood veneer birdie.  Some flat and some faceted sequins in white and peach were the finishing touch.
I'll be submitting this to Runway Inspired Challenge: I was inspired by the peachy stripes. And is anyone else as excited as I am at the length of the skirts in the recent fashion shows?  Mid calf skirts are making a comeback - hooray!!
I'll also be submitting this card to CASology - Monochrome
Thanks for visiting :)
