turquoise and bird collection

I'm loving the bird die and was having a play this weekend...with the free papers
that came with the pampered pets on the Docrafts mag, a while back.

I shaped and embossed the bottom of the card, 
used my die to cut the main shape and carefully cut round that in another piece of white,
inked all edges in gold. 
Finally I added the bird (new die) and punched butterflies. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges...
Dream Valley Challenges - die cuts and punches
Divas by Design -   for a female
Catered Crop -  white 

 This card isn't quite finished yet as I'm going to put 
a sentiment on the bottom somewhere...just haven't found the right sentiment yet!
(you can't see so well on the pic, but I have embossed around the panel..
I think it "finishes" a card like this.)

This is not a great picture I'm afraid...
I used martha stewart borders top and bottom.
Also a sentiment stamp...though it looks blurry at the bottom, it's ok and 
quite readable in real life.
