Let Me Tell You Bout The...

I have enjoyed the challenge from Get Inky so much I decided to make a second card following their theme of 'Let Me Tell You Bout The...' :)

For this card I created the background in Photoshop and added the tree and birds with brushes created by Obsidian Dawn then added the uncloured digi (png).  Once printed I then used Black Sparkle and clear embossing powders mixed together and embossed areas of the tree, this gave such a lovely texture to the card, think I will have to do it again <g>.  Next I printed another two copies of the digi, one for decoupaging the boy and girl sections the other for the moon.  The three images, one on the card and two others were coloured in individually and then assembled.  I added flowers and a die cut bee and finished off with a sentiment topper.
