collage card

Hi there, thanks for popping in today.
Last night I tried another challenge for myself. I wanted to try a stamp collage card . As I have said 100 x before I find it hard to add more than two or three items on a card. So I gathered some stamps together that I thought " went together " with the card stock and paper I had chosen.
And here is the resulting card.
I used Bashful Blue card and dsp from Bella Blue, SU
Inks were Baja Breeze and Brilliant Blue , SU
The music  image  , from Vintage Collage [ TJ Designs]  was second generation stamped onto unknown sourced  pale blue rectangle piece. Over that I stamped postage mark and bird from Song Birds of same company.
Wishes greeting is from set  ' Heard From The Heart' , SU . And the small flower images are from ' Cottage Garden '  set from SU.
I adhered this onto card front with Stampin' Dimensionals .
Added embellishments of ribbon and flower were about all I could manage , before I felt this was almost too much .
I am actually happy to share this creation . May be,  you might have a tip or two that you can  pass on to me about collage, to help with my next stamp collage card.
Cheers for now , Shirley-Anne
