Pretty little birds

I have used "Sparrows in bird bath"
from Pattie's Creations, for this challenge...

 It tried to give a 3d look to the stone bird bath and a softness to the birds,
colouring with my promarkers and other alcohol pens.
The image is so pretty, so I paired it with a very pretty background paper. 
I added some punched butterflies ,
a die-cut bird and a stamped sentiment.
I like the way a dry embossed line finishes around an image so used that technique, too.

I would like to add this into the following challenges:

Artistic edge

I was offered a guest designer spot at Mirtillamente,
using one of her wonderful images...
and chose to base this card on the inner peace theme...

 The image was lovely to colour with my promarkers and other alcohol pens.
Some parts of the sentiment was stamped, and some parts are hand written.
I have put some parts on 3d foam... the orange paintbrush,
the paintbrush popping through the hand hole
and the tubes of paint. 
A few white highlights gave a little more depth to this image. 
I felt It only needed something really simple behind, 
as I wanted the image to be the main focus.
I thought the backing paper looked a bit like 
it had been water-coloured, and ripped edges gave it a creative edge.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
