Flourish with a Bling/Scrapmatts Product Swap & Giveaway!

Hi and welcome to the final Day (day 10) of the Flourish with a Bling / Scrapmatts product swap, I'm so delighted to be a part of this partnership of products, bling and chipboard compliment each other perfectly!

My card has been created using FWAB's Chloe olive green flourish, Jack olive green vine and Scrapmatt's birds and bird cage. The papers are from Bo Bunny and I have distressed the edges. The birdcage has been covered in Smooch pearlized accent ink and then a clear coat of Papertole 3D gloss. The birds were inked using VersaMagic "Hint of pesto" chalk ink and then also given a coat of the Papertole 3D gloss. I ever so lightly sanded the birdcage and birds once dry to give them a little shabbiness. I added the single olive green pearls to the Chloe flourish so the birdcage could "hang" from the swirls.
