A Shabby SFYTT

Hey peeps!

I'm popping in late tonight to share a card using TSG stamps! I'll be keeping the details short and sweet as I'm about to nod off... zzzzz... :)

I used Jen's SFYTT from last Saturday for the layout on this card. I know - I'm really into the sketch challenges lately. Not sure what is up with that except I have been having a bit of stampers' block these last couple of weeks. Too many non-stamping projects... including a big one - new windows for the house! ;)
Main image was stamped on Naturals Ivory cardstock and colored. The curtain portion of the image and the little bird were stamped a second time on white cardstock, colored with Copic markers and cut out. I then adhered these pieces over the first image (used dimensionals for the bird).
I used the Tattered Florals Tim Holtz die to cut a pretty flower from a sheet of acrylic. I used my paper piercer to poke for holes in the center and attached the flower with a button to my card using string/jute/twine (not sure what the perfect name for it is). I used more of the twine to attach three buttons on the upper right side of the card.

When finished I added a coating of Crystal Effects to the window opening and the arches. And a touch of glitter to the little birdie with an orange Spica pen.
