OLC with Flourish

I went through my stamps again and came across the Kaiser's Tiger Lilly set  and it had a flourish stamp. So I could enter into this challenge (yippy). This card is masked off and sponged with Adirondack Ink Shell Pink inside the mask. The sentiment and bird are TPS Vintage Bird Cages Set. I Stamped the sentiment  then the bird in Brown Staz On. I masked off the flourish and stamped that in  Brown Staz On and removed all masked from card. I then  scored a frame around the picture x2. This is for the LIM One Layer Card Challenge #71: Flourish. Hope this is enough of the flourish it took 11 tries..lol. It was one of those days were I should have walked away and came back later...lol ENJOY!
