Mini Card

Good afternoon everyone! And a warm welcome to my new followers!
Today at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge.  Broni is the hostess and she has asked us to make a mini card...no larger than a 4"x3" (approx 100mm x75mm).
Here is my card...
The second largest Spellbinders Fleur De Lis die is the perfect size for this card.  I also used one of the classic rectangles to stamp my image onto. After masking my sun, I sponged first with distress inks, (Salty Ocean, Spiced Marmalade and Mowed Lawn). I then stamped with one of the Flourishes 'Cherry Blossom' stamps, which is a silhouette stamp. I added the tiny birds using a fine tip black marker pen. The sentiment is from Flourishes 'Tag Lines'.
Thanks for stopping by!
