Guest Design with Mariana!

Hello, it brings me great pleasure to share a card with you today. I am the guest designer for Mariana's March Challenge in her blog. 
inspirationmarch3 
 I was inspired by the color combo and went with the theme "Birds and Branches", here is my take:
a little birdie told me 
Supplies: SRM Stickers (sentiment), Music Background, Little Birdie (Hero Arts), leaf stencil (Simon Says Stamps ), gold strings, sequins

I have combined a few techniques for this card--kissing, stenciling, layering and embossing (on the birdie). Hope this card makes you feel that Spring is truly here! I would love it if you stop by Mariana's blog as she does beautiful and detailed work!
Thanks for stopping by!

This is amazing!
Did you leave the stencil down and then stamp the music on top? Love that look and need to try it.
