Loving birds

This cute image is from Meljen and I colored it with colored pencils. I stitched with gray embroidery floss the string that the birds strung, added some pearl paint to the dots and applied eye shadow to the borders of the image.
The papers I used are from Jaime, I love them! she has such a good sense of color combinations and I like all her work. I also stitched some gray pearls on the centers of the flowers of the green paper.
I made this card for a friend who is getting married this weekend, I hope the newlywed-to-be like it!

PS: I´m entering this card in Meljen´s Designs DT blog: challenge #1 (I though I was late!!!)
