Card: Pearlescent window card

There is a wedding coming up in about two weeks, so I thought I would make a card for the occasion. The steps are quite simple, the only time consuming part is cutting out the bird! But I love cutting intricate designs so it was fun making this card. I must confess though, I had an earlier version where I tried to stamp the “Congratulations” in two different color inks trying to match with the pattern paper. Because the paper I used is pearlescent, hence has a glossy fifnish, the result was not so good, I got ink smudged…and the sad part is, I did it at the end!  So this time, you will see me doing it at the very beginning. 

The pictures are not so good; I coudn’t capture the embossed effect, but the card looks really pretty in real life. Here are some close up pictures of the bird and the sentiment:
