A Little Birthday Birdie with Dimensional Layers

Today I want to enter a card at Joan's Touch for this week's challenge which calls for us to use at least one item sold at Joan's Gardens and an image which is layered. We may use any color.

The image is a sweet little one-legged birdie that I got from somewhere on the internet; she is die cut into three layers with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two. She is placed on a white layer embossed with a Cuttlebug Happy Birthday EF, which is laid on top of a turquoise layer. The embossed layer is inked with a blend of green and blue inks. To add some interest, a PoppyStamps Lorelai Leaf die cut in two different colors is added and to finish the card, twine is wrapped around the layers and tied with a bow with a little button accent. 

Here is the card:

This angle shows the dimensional layers of the die cut:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
