Bird Delight Stitch

I stitched this a couple of years ago.  I used Heidi Swapp's scrapbook paper with a bird for a template.  I did the font myself.
I used to be a part of a monthly stitch group and used to stitch all the time. 
To do this project, I used everything that I had on hand.  I just painted the frame black & tea-dyed muslin.  {I don't drink tea, but I have some on hand for projects like this}
The flower is actually attached to the glass on the outside.  I just layered a flower then cut out 2 different sizes of circles and folded them to give a petal look.  The bling in the middle is from the flea market, I bought it knowing that I would be able to use it somehow.
Have a fabulous weekend!
