Bird and Cage


I have had company and lots going on, so missed a couple of days of posting.  Today I wanted to use the Tim Holtz "Caged Bird" die for a birdcage to show off this pretty bird.    The design paper I used is from Graphic 45 "Le Romantique" paper pad.  The branches were die cut using the Sizzix "Birds & Branches Die".  The bird is from a K&Company Grand Adhesions Dimensional Stickers" pack. 

The birdcage was die cut and shaped using tools from the Flower Tool Kit available from Joan's Gardens.  Two of the branches from the branch die were used.  They were cut out using green card stock then the branches were sponged with a sponge dauber and brown ink.  Some green ink was sponged over it and the leaves.  Vellum flowers were punched using a Martha Stewart flower punch, shaped then added to the branches and around the bird.  The sentiment is from one of my favorite JustRite stamps sets "You Inspire me".  It was black embossed on green card stock and cut out with scissors.  A piece of velvet trim was added to the bottom of the card.

We have a lot of exciting things happening at Joan's Gardens this week.  Tomorrow Joan will be back with the weekly Tag Challenge.  I have my tag all ready and I am anxious for you to see it.  You won't want to miss the next Weekly Challenge at Joan's Gardens on Thursday.  This challenge is really exciting. Some fabulous prizes will be available for those that participate. 

All the products used on my card today can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
