DT Post for the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge: Something with Wings

This week at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our twist is "Something with Wings." You can be creative and use fairies, angels, dragons, birds, butterflies, etc. I chose an image from our wonderful sponsor Ppinkdolls this month called "Love is in the Air." You can purchase it at their etsy store here:
I imported my digi to my Silhouette Design Studio software and sized it up and printed it out. Then I colored it with Copic and MEXPY markers and die cut it and my sentiment using Spellbinders Stately Circles. The sentiment comes from a digi stamp set by From the Heart Stamps called "Lil Birdie." 
I die cut 2 wreaths with Memory Box's Catalina Wreath die. I popped up the wreath around the birds with foam tape. The second wreath I adhered to my circle mat with Scor-Pal 1/4 inch tape. I popped up my sentiment with foam squares.
I made the card base an easel card using the largest die from Spellbinders Gold Majesty Circles die set. I adhered the circles to the card with glue tape and then added a few wooden bird accents I colored with Copics. 

I plan to enter this card in the following challenges:
