Springtime Cardinal Collection Debut

Good Morning and welcome to another amazing and gorgeous release from Heartfelt Creations.  Our brand new collection releasing today is called "Springtime Cardinal", consists of 8 new PreCut stamp sets that coordinate with existing exclusive Heartfelt Creations die sets manufactured by Spellbinders.  These images are beautiful and are perfect for any project. 
My project today is a 6" x 6" wall hanging, as soon as a saw this image I pictured it in pinks, and just happened to have this beautiful patterned paper from Basic Grey with the perfect colors and the little birdcage images.
I stamped the image on Canson paper and colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.
Here is a close up of the image, once colored I cut with scissors and adhered with  pop dots, also layered some flowers for more dimension.

Here are all the little flowers I stamped and diecut with the coordinating die, added some Stickles and adhesive pearls from Want2Scrap to the center of the flowers.
