Blue Bird in a Cage...


Good morning everyone!  I just love how this card turned out...what do you think?  I'm entering this in the weekly challenge over at Joan's Gardens .  This week Joan's challenge calls for the following:

Use a Bird Theme
Use a branch and leaves
Use Blue on your card

Use a frame

I used The Bird Sanctuary dies for the birdcage and the bird.  The corners and leaves are  Marianne dies.  Before I shaped the flowers I added a yellow color wash to the centers then I glued a pearl in the center.  Ranger distress inks were used for all color on this card.  The paper is from Prima. 

So wish me luck in the challenge.  I love playing along each week whether I win or not, it just keeps me motivated to do something else creative.  Why don't you join in this week.  Go over to Joan's site and look around; the weekly challenge is posted at the top of the page.  She also has a wonderful shop on this site and she has very reasonable prices.  Each time I order from Joan I'm always so pleased with how the package arrives in pristine condition.  Well done, Joan!
