The Card Concept Challenge #44

Happy Wednesday to ya!
Here is my card for The Card Concept Challenge #44.
 I saw LOVELY texture in this inspirational photo.
I die cut a bird and heat embossed with WOW gold powder, then while the embossing was still HOT, I stamped an image onto the bird to achieve a cool texture.

The red leaves are real from the FIRE-BUSH at our home. I pressed them for a few days in a the pages of an old book. Then stamped in white a few images from Altenew Henna Elements. Allowed that to dry overnight. 
I then layered several dies of branches and leaves behind the bird. The JOY die cut sentiment brings the whole thing together, along with the stamped notes:)

This card SINGS with texture!
Hope you have time to play!
