A Little Bird Told Me

I made this card for my good friend Debbie.  Yesterday was her birthday.  We met when our children began preschool together, and our families have been friends ever since.  I am so grateful for her friendship.  On the card, I colored the bird and branch with Copic markers, and added black Enamel Accents (Ranger) for the eye.   I also used Rock Candy Distress Stickles on the bird and roses.  The paper is from Linen Closet by DCWV, and the dies are as follows:  Oval, Nestabilities; bird and branch, Stampin'Up, Rolled roses and scalllop borders, My Favorite Things.  I believe the blue metallic flowers are from Colorbok, and the sentiment stamp is from Ladybug Crafts Ink.  The pearls are from my stash, and I am not sure where I got them.  I tried to enter this card in the MFT wednesday stamp club challenge, but I had trouble uploading my image in time.  They have begun using a sketch for their challenges, and that is where the design of this card came from.  Can you guess where my image inspiration came from?  (Hint:  Look at the right side of my blog.)
