Summer Sundae Inspiration! :-)

Hi Everyone,
This is Hussena here to share with you my inspiration for this month's challenge theme 'Summer Sundae' set by our amazing and talented DT member Pallavi! :)....I am sharing a card based on the theme and here's a look at my card :-
                                 
                                                       
A look at the inside of the card :-
                                                         
I have followed the color inspiration and the recipe  ingredients...And my recipe is as follows :

I have used 2 base cardstocks and 1 pattern paper.
Used more than 1 die although the challenge requires 1 punched element or 1 die-cut element.      
And my 3 embellishments are : Pearls,Rhinestone and the Flower Brad.          
And my touch of glitter I have added on the sides of the bird and on the Eiffel Tower as well!        

This card is so totally different from my usual style..I am not sure whether its turned out as I wanted to but I have experimented on a little bit of shabby chic/grunge-look specially the torn paper look with the doily insert below..That is one technique which I have been meaning to try for some time..Guess,need lot of practice still :)And As Dies is the the focus of this month at Crafter's corner I decided to play with the new Memory box Die that I had purchased recently  from the Crafter's Corner shop especially the Wrought Iron gate die so I die-cut these and over-lapped  and stuck them on each other to form a fence...I really like the way it has turned out..The fence I mean, and I have punched and distressed the small flowers and created the vine-like look...Did you notice the bird-cage with the solitary bird..Well of course,I did a bit of manipulation there too and used the part of the Wrought-Iron die to create the bottom half of the cage...Pretty isn't it ?


Okay now onto the supplies used  in my card :-

Base CS : Stash
Pattern paper : Webster's pages
Dies :Memory Box -Wrought Iron Gate Memory Box Birdcage, Memory Box Nestled bird ,MFT Die-namics-Eiffel tower,Spellbinders Nestabilities: Label 3,Cherry Lynn Flourish leaf strip.
Punches : Punch bunch Hydra cluster,Martha Stewart Doily lace punch.
Stamps : Unity and Sentiment from TPC
Inks : Momento Rich Cocoa,Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink
Distress inks : Scattered Straw,Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar.
Brad and pearls from Stash.

Hope you all like my card...
