Triple Stamping - Bird on flower - Inspirational Challenge #1 Stampin' Fun and Friends

This Inspirational Challenge with Stampin' Fun and Friends required a bit of thinking on my part, but I finally opted for a triple stamping card using the colors of the challenge.  The colors I used:  Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Early Espresso. I couldn't resist putting a bird with the flower.

Here is my card:

 

Technique:
Flower: Punch 3 of the 1 1/4 Scallop circles in Summer Starburst and using the same color of ink,stamp one of the images of a flower center all over the scallops.  Then snip between every 2 scallops, curl petals downward, and attach 2 of them together with a dimensional- alternating petals.
Punch one each of the smaller flowers of the Boho petal punch.  Snip between petals, bunch the flowers up and glue one inside the other.  Attach this to the inside of the Summer Starburst flower.  Put a pearl at the center of the flower. Spritz with gold smooch.
Attach this to a Gumball Green Scallop circle the scallops of which had been pricked with the mat pack and paper piercer.
The leaves are made using the Sizzlets Little Leaves die

Bird:
On a piece of whisper white paper, sponge some Summer Starburst, and then sponge some Early Espresso above that.  Insert the Bird builder punch maneuvering it until you have the desired color combination for the bird.  The beak is a leaf from this punch. Sponge the top of the bird with Early Espresso, and the belly with Summer Starfruit. The wing is punched the same way and attached to the body of the bird using a dimensional.
A little pearl makes the eye
