DT Card for Challenge with Dragonflies # 11: Use at least 5 different scraps

Using sponsor Meljens image : little birdsong

Hi guys, here we are already up to challenge # 11, I still feels like our challenge blog is sort of  newish Crafting with Dragonflies,  I guess not really, lol...

Over at the Dragonflies we have a challenge every two weeks and we alternate between a card challenge and a project.

This fortnight we are asking you to create a card with your
leftover paper scraps, at least 5 different ones....

Here is a list of my scraps, the birdcage, there are 4 background scrap pieces, one with a butterfly. The scalloped circle punch and the I have 8,
Our generous sponsor is Meljens and this cute little bird is singing his heart out, just happy he is not in the cage....I coloured him with pro markers and sponged the edges with some pale blue ink....and as you can see I used lots of liquid pearls for embellishing.... (that stuff is very addictive, when does one stop, I couldn't find that in the instructions......?)
Blessings Hilde
