Blingy Bird

I thought it was about time my Cricut saw some action so I had a play about with the Home Decor cartridge at the weekend and this is one of the cards I made:

I used canvas paper for the background with a bottom border from the Desert Blooms pad.  I cut the silhouette bird, it's crown, and the butterfly from the same card as the border, and the detailed overlay bird from some glittered card from the same pack.  The frame has also been cut on the Cricut with some plain green card, and I added some gems and ribbon.

Hope you like it.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
