I'll keep the light on for you

Hi everyone!
 I had so much fun making today's card.  I combined some of my pattern paper, Label shaped dies, stencil, birds and flower! And my card is based on Inspired By Stamping Sketch IBSIC #90 .

My background was created with an embossing folder which I then stenciling over for sunrays with homemade embossing paste. I tried to create the ombre effect for lighting and before drying, added diamond dust on it for shinning and heat dry it! I distressed the edges before adhering it on my card base.
The Birds are so sweet  and I created them in yellow to match the sun so it is the main focal point of my scene. I started by popping up the background layer on the card base with adhesive foams to add dimension and interest to the all white background.  The popped up stitched frame adds color and another level of dimension to showcase the images. I cut the bird die in green and then cut the birds again in yellow, cut them off and attached them over the green. I love all the bright and happy colors. I attached a banner with a message on it with lots of masking. Highlighted the word "Light" and the background has a wash look. Then I attached a yellow twine and a mulberry flower( which I won in a candy) with few pollens and green colored micro beads. I fairly tried to keep it CAS too.

This is very cute...I love the bird die as well as the over-all lay-out of your creation. Thank you for linking your card to our Challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday. I want to share with you God's Word in Isaiah 43:18-19 which tells us, " "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland." Have a wonderful day filled with the blessings of the Lord Jesus!
