Directions:
Make a 6 x 6 white card base. Cut a 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 linen. Cut a 5 ¾ x 5 ¾ from Countryside Evening DP (yellow with tiny blue grey five petal flowers).  Cut the largest corner die out of the upper right corner of the DP then layer on the linen paper. With VersaMark stamp the Melodious Songbird on water color paper, emboss with Rustique Patina Azure. Cut with the Smallest Grand Circles Die. Color Songbird, flowers and leaves using a water color brush and distress ink. Apply Crystal Effects to bird’s belly. Sponge the sky, sun and green around bird. Cut two of the smallest Grand Decorative Circles out of the DP. On one of the die cuts, cut the largest Standard Circles. Layer on card as shown. On a piece of water color paper stamp the smallest Posy 20 times with VersaMark ink and emboss with Rustique Patina Azure. Cut with coordinating dies. I use the Layered Scallop Posy die because there are eight of the smallest Posy die with the set.  Color the Posy with Shaded Lilac and Milled Lavender distress inks.  Shape the flowers and glue a rhinestone in the center. Glue a small rhinestone on the bird’s eye. From the linen paper cut Foliage Two leaves and spray with Perfect Pearls Mist.  Stamp sentiment on linen card stock with VersaMark and emboss with Rustique Patina Azure cut with circle die.  Cut a circle next size larger from water color paper. With Splendid Circles die cut DP one size larger then water color circle. Layer as shown. Tie ribbon and attach to top of largest circle.  Attach Posy and leaves following the pattern in the DP.

Linda, this card is amazing! It is so beautiful, with the flowers popped up and the decorative corners cut out of the coordinating paper. I definitely am going to case this one! I haven't stamped the bird yet but it is next on my list! Lovely layout also.

I thought the header on the HC Blog looked like a Linda layout! Then as I was going through, trying to find yours (it's one of my weekly tests you know!) there she was. Absolutely gorgeous! The colors are exquisite along with every little detail you put on the project.

Hi, Linda, my traveling fiend-friend! LOL Such beautiful dimension in your lovely card - I especially like how the tiny flowers flow from the top left to the bottom right. So you said you just followed the design on the paper, and it "flowed" perfectly? What a great tip that is. I'm sure those doily corner dies will be in my stash. Just waiting til next month to see what February has so I can combine the shipping. LOL So pretty!
