Published! First time!

This is currently one of my favorite digi's from Whimsy.  She is called Birdie Friend.  Is she beautiful?  The background flowers are from Mel Stampz and I merged them using the software Inkscape.  It's a free software and works well for merging and layering multiple digi's.  I popped up one of the flowers, birdie and the ribbon in her hair for additional texture.  I added some clouds in the background, but they seem a little faint in this picture.  Also, spellbinders was used for the hearts circle background and a martha stewart fence punch too.  I also snuck in a flourish die I have and some awesome red flowers from my stash.

She was published in Whimsy's Inspiration Magazine!!

Here is a bit of a close up.  The fence has white crackle on it and was sponged with Linen Antique ink, but it doesn't seem to show the crackles much.
