I used a piece of design paper from the Webster's Pages Spring Market paper pack for the background on this card. The card is 5.5" x 6". As I have done many times, I like to create flowers that match those in the design paper, so I used the dies from Susan's Gardens "Mini Petals" to create little roses the same colors and approximately the same size as in the design paper . I love creating these very small flowers; they are so easy to shape with the Susan's Garden Flower Tool Kit. I used Susan's Garden "Pan Pastel Ultra Soft Artists' Painting Pastels" to add some color to the pink and white roses. The cute bird cage is a Tim Holtz Idea-ology metal bird cage. The cage has a removable back, so I cut a piece of matching design paper to go inside the cage. The bird was die cut using a die from the Heartfelt Creation "Garden Romance Collection" dies. It was colored blue to match the bird in the design paper. It was attached with "Crafter's Pick Ultimate Glue" to the metal; this is the same glue I use to create my flowers. The birthday sentiment was die cut using the Cheery Lynn "Mix and Match Card Sentiments". The sentiment pieces were attached with "E6000" Spray Adhesive. I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card.
