Something Beginning with B

While visiting some of my favourite blogs I spotted a challenge from Allsorts and they seem to be playing a game of 'I-Spy' and the letter is 'B'.  I was just about to post this card which as it happens has a bird on it so I guess this would qualify.   I stamped a large dictionary page as background before over stamping with some flowers and a branch.  I then stamped, coloured and die cut the bird and punched out a few tiny flowers from scraps of card coloured using the same ink as was used to colour the bird (Distress Markers).  A fancy die cut which was lying around just seemed to fit the space at the side and a stamped greeting was cut out with banner dies with the bottom layer being white card coloured with Distress ink to match the flowers.
