Altered Mini Canvas

A friend of mine,who has had some pretty tough times but remains an amazing lady is moving to Devon. I wanted to make a 'little' something for her that was small enough to take with her as most of her things are going into storage for a while.
This little canvas represents Spring and new beginnings.Really hope she likes it.

3x2" mini canvas painted cream
Antique Linen and Vintage Photo to distress,sprayed with heirloom gold Perfect Pearls Mist
The shading doesn't show well in the photos as far more pronounced in real life!(Probably my photography skills - or lack of them!) Lol.
Rock Candy distress stickles on lower part of canvas
Branch,bird and cage - Tim Holtz dies - grungeboard
Branch -vintage photo
Bird and cage,adirondack paints & gold krylon pen
Flower - tattered florals smallest flower - cut 3x out of white paper,inked with spun sugar,stamped with prima text and glimmer misted
Mini red flower button
Heart charm from old necklace

I am entering this into The Paper Variety challenge this week - to use a flower or flowers.Hope it meets their criteria as although it's a canvas,the flower is made from paper.
Thanks for stopping by.Enjoy the weekend.
