Inspired bird on branch

Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing a card I made for Saturday's Inspiration Challenge on SCS. I used Layers of Color Back Yard Birds and Merci Bouquet, and the frame is Our Daily Bread Designs Vine Borders. The inspiration piece was from Elizabeth's Embellishments and can be seen here. The base and brown are Bazzill, the MS punched layer is SU! Kraft and the designer paper is Deja View Timeless Collection. The little bless you sentiment is from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. The string is May Arts. There is sparkle on each of the flowers with Stickles, though it's too dark today to capture that.

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
