Things with Wings

I thought long and hard about what I was going to make for the very first challenge at Simon Says . The theme is Things with wings. Here's what I came up with!
So your asking yourself... What is it?
Well its my first crown. My Crown of Birds, complete with nest, twigs, flowers and leaves.

A side shot!

A close up.

The crown is made from mat board covered with wallpaper that I distressed. Then I began adding all the nature inspired items, but I could resist the Music paper with the Dove name and flower label.

I had a heck of a time trying to photograph this. These are the best shots I could come up with.
Oh to have a better camera!!!!
