Sweet Little Birdcage


Good Morning Ladies,
Well here we go the first card of 2015!
I used a sheet of My Minds Eye Lost & Found Blush Card as inspiration,
I decided to go with a birdcage theme, I made me think of Spring!
I cut a Marianne Birdcage Die and some pink card, cut the die and folded the
door of the cage back to open, I then decided too to use lots of foliage, the foliage
is Impression Obsession Leafy Sprig and fern dies, I used some flowers from
my stash and the tiny ones are impression Obsession Tiny Flowers, I cut it from the same
card as I used to matt and layer with to tie the colours in, they also match the swags on the
top of the paper, I added a little more foliage at the top of the cage and another little flower
and a little tag, saying 'With Love' from my stash. I matted and layered on to the two colours
of pink that I used I the cage and flowers, please let me know what you think.
There are two more pictures below, showing a close up of the foliage.
The card size is approx. 7 X 7 inches.
I look forward to hearing your comments.
Love and Hugs,
