This is an altered cabinet card for a friend.....HI JO! :0) See her link on my artists list......Jo Wholohan! We are doing a one for one swap and she created a beautiful cabinet card with birds for the theme, so I followed her lead and did one with bird items too! I am especially fond of the robin's nest on her head as a hat!!! Heheheeh! The background is done in many colors , some inks, some chalks....and then stamping, and more stamping with brilliance inks......they shine.....like the blue ball flowers at the bottom, and then the addition of images, some dyed cheesecloth by the bottom birds....the round metal at the bottom right has a "J" for Jo on it, you cannot see that very well! The top is a neat finding attached with brads and then blue ribbon so she can hang this is she chooses! Just fun! I hope you like it Jo!!!! :))
