Inner Tube Birdbrain

Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge from the ladies at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight, Neva is challenging us to "Use a Transparent Element".  Fun!

I used a Birdbrain and this week's From the Heart Stamps sketch for my card.  My transparent element is clouds, die cut from recycled packaging.  I've colored the image with pencils and added some glitter to the inner tube and her eyelids.  The sun is die cut from sparkly CS, and the clouds are die cut from felt and acetate packaging.  I've added some ribbon and a few buttons for embellishing.  Here's a close-up of the embellishing:

Image: From the Heart Stamps "Inner Tube Birdbrain" Digital Set
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110 CS, PTI Harvest Gold and Hibiscus Burst, Echo Park Patterned Paper, Doodlebug Sugar Coated CS
Embellies: Martha Stewart Glitter in "Lemon Drop" (eye shadow), Doodlebug Glitter (white, inner tube), Doodlebug Buttons/DMC Floss, PTI Grosgrain Ribbon (Hibiscus Burst)
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Foam Tape
