Sentimental Sunday #15 Anything Goes

Hello Everyone,
Hope this finds all doing well. I was inspired by a Card that Karen B.over at The Bald Dragonfly http://thebalddragonfly.blogspot.com/2010/08/bluebirds.html
made. You have to go check her's out.
For mine: You have heard of Pheasant under Glass?  Well, I have Bluebird under acetate.  I think that I have found a way to use acetate that doesn't make me want to set it on fire.
Unlike Karen B. I used distressing ink to color my Bluebird before I used the Glimmer Mist.
It was a hard call not to use the back of my image for this one.  I just could not get the red/orange color right on the front.  But the back was just the color I was looking for.  I thought about doing a window or just make the front of the card acetate.  But I did not have a big enough sheet for that.
But I think that it turned out quite nice. Well, I had better get to the details.  Thank You for visiting.

Inside Card

Image from Tiffany Doodles,Glossy Accents, Copics  & Glimmer Mist.  I used distressing ink for the nest before the Glimmer Mist.  But as it dried the color was dulled.  So I went back over it with my Copics.
This is the sheet that I used when I applied the Glimmer Mist to my bird & thought that it would make a good inside cover sheet

The Peace & Faith stickers are from http://www.serendipitystamps.com/
Sorry that this was such a long one.
Thank You for considering my entry.
