A Day to Celebrate

This started out subtle, but quickly veered towards a little glitz via some crystals and glitter that I hope the camera picks up . . .

The window frame was left over from a previous project.  It was sitting on my worktable, gathering dust, and looking un-appreciated.  So I popped it over the background image, and as serendipity would have it, the openings framed the two birds in the design perfectly.  I stamped the birds again, cut them out, and pop-dotted them over the originals for more dimension. 

The white embossing powder is a favorite:  pure white, and not a bit of shine.  It has a  perfect shabby look that works for so many layouts.  As for this one, a peaceful scene, some texture, plus a little sparkle . . . works for me!
