Bouquet without Chick

As you more than likely know by now, one of my favourite characters to use on a card are the Birdbrains by From The Heart Stamps. Faith really captures these little dudes and dudettes in such great poses which are sure to gain a smile when you see them :)
Have you seen the NEW RELEASES yet? there's a couple of new Birdbrains, as well as some new images that are perfect for Valentines.

Most of Faith's images come with free sentiments, and sometimes, you get additional images too.
So today, I wanted to show you one of these additional images.
I've used Bouquet Chick in the past, on this card (my debut GDT card).
But did you know that when you buy this digi, you also get the vase of flowers without the peeking chick?...

I've used this weeks sketch with a twist (#97) for my layout, and i've used the twist too, which is to use embossed cardstock. I chose an embossing folder from Cuttlebug's Heritage Companion Set for my background piece.
I resized, then printed one of the larger flowers again so that I could use it as an extra embellishment.
I coloured my images with Promarkers, then added some flatback pearls to the centre of the larger flowers.
The scalloped frame behind the image is actually a border die by cArt-Us ('fountain'), which has been cut up into individual scallops and then glued to the back of my oval. I started and ended at the point where I wanted to place my embellishment so that the slight gap between 2 of the scallops could be hidden.
The spotty paper was free with a craft magazine some time ago, I can't see the brand name anywhere on the pad, but the paper collection is called 'Sew Pretty'.
The sentiment is a stamp by Inkadinkado.
