There are also some amazing prizes up for grabs from Tim & Mario 
AND....... 
 INSPIRATION EMPORIUM are offering a fab $50 gift certificate.
Just more reasons to play along.

So to my make..

Practically everything on the card is Tim's except a spellbinders diecut, some lace and a piece of fernli designs mdf that I did the marble effect on.

I even got out my sewing machine and tried out one of it's fancy stitches, and I love how it came out.
Note to self.. use sewing machine for cards more!

Any Q's, feel free to ask xo
Thanks for stopping by

Great job, Nicky! Lots of layering, textures, colors. I love all that dimension. Your color choice for the Paint Marbling technique is a beautiful background for your pretty birds.
