Beautiful Bird

Hi everyone it is time for another challenge over at

The challenge theme is
Here Comes Summer

The image I used was " A Bird Among The Branches"  by Jess at

I colored the image with colored pencils.  I distressed the edges with Peeled Paint  and Faded Blue Jeans by Tim Holtz.  I went over that in gold Perfect Pearl Powder. I added pink flowers in two corners of the card.
