Card with matching Canvas

I made a card with matching canvas for my Mother in Laws Birthday, which is today. The card blank is one I got from Create and Craft, it is white with gold foiling and a lovely green printed pattern. I just stamped the Crafty Individuals four birds stamp onto white card and then used some distress inks to give it a little colour. I then mounted the image onto some gold mirror card and centred it onto the card.

For the canvas I used distress re-inkers to colour the canvas and then cut some 1 1/2" squares out of mount board. I stamped various Crafty Individuals stamps onto the mountboard squares and also onto some vellum and cut the vellum ones out and used silicone to attach them - thus giving them some depth. Also, some of the mountboard squares are just covered with Crafty Individuals paper and again the butterfly's are 3d. The centre square is approx 3" square and I stamped the Crafty Individual four birds stamp onto the mountboard and coloured using distress inks.
This weeks challenge on Stamp Something Blog is "in the wild" so I hope these will be okay.
