Just Saying Hello

Hi friends,

Wow... how long did I miss posting here? I miss you and your comments so much. This is the card I made just now. I used my new die cut, a bird cage. It seems to me that anything goes with a cage is a vintage look. Well, not that easy to make a vintage look. So, I decided to make a monochrome card with a hint on the bird itself.


This is my card.



To embellish the cage, I used punch outs: leaves, gave distress ink. The flowers were stamped and cut. I added the bling-bling and some stickles to make it a bit shiny. I know, it doesn't turn that good.Or, I was not good enough to take the picture. ;D

Sources: Hero Arts Stamp (the bg, flower and sentiment),
Punch Bunch (Giant Fern), Bird die cut
