Pink Wings

There is a photo inspiration challenge at Make My Monday this week and as I have a bird cage stamp as yet to see ink, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to play with it.  This is the inspiration photo and they have the added challenge of  "things with wings".

Coincidentally, the CASE study challenge this week has a bird cage card as the CASE card so I decided to use Julie Lacie's card as my inspiration for the layout and style.

This is what I came up with when I combined the two challenges - I stamped and embossed the bird cage in white onto a nestie circle with a pink scalloped circle.  I stamped the birds onto black shrink plastic and stuck them on top of the cage.  I added a matching sentiment, a double ribbon and a small handmade flower.

Stamps:   My Minds Eye, Verve

As I made the flower (see my tutorial page for how) I am also entering this weeks Moving Along with the Times which is to make handmade flowers.

See you all tomorrow
