LOC Happy Days - Card 2

I am back today to show you the second card for my Card Design Class at my LSS Scrap n Stuff, next week!

This card is the quick card of the set - I usually try to make one more complex and one simple one - it does not come much easier then this!

The Basic Grey DP has been embossed with the Stylised Flowers Embossing Folder.

I have stamped the Backyard Bird image with two Distressing Inks - Spiced Marmalade and Walnut Stain and cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Circle and Lacey Circles Nestibilities.

Finishing off with a row of thin ribbon and lace, along with some half pearls.  Nice and easy!

This card is for the following challenges:
My Time to Craft - Here comes Summer
Oldie But a Goodie - Must Use Stamp at least 6 Months Old
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Pile It On - Going Around in Circles
Secret Crafter - Embossing
