Gold Bird Cage

At SweetStamps blog today our theme is Silver or Gold.  Please join us for a chance to win $20.00 in FREE stamps by entering your Silver or Gold creation in our challenge.  If you enter using a SweetStamps stamp you will be entered twice in the drawing.

For todays card I started with a white A2 card and a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of printed bird paper from the Authentique Lively 6x6 paper pad both were pounced with Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  The printed paper was outlined with a Gold Leafing Pen.  I stamped the 6007 Robyn Bird Silhouette on Stardream text-weight paper with Distress Embossing ink and heat embossed with Queen's Gold EP then hand cut it.  I die cut the B198 Bird Cage and B117S Mini Fanciful Flourish both from Cheery Lynn Designs from Gold Mirror card stock.  I glued the bird to another piece of Stardreams paper and used Krylon Spray Adhesive on the bird cage to layer it over the bird.  I cut around the bird cage and used foam dots to layer it on the card.  To attach the flourish I used Micro Glue Dots because I wanted some areas to remain loose from the card.  I colored the rhinestones with a YR24 Copic marker.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks blog challenge at SweetStamps.com, please join us next week when our challenge will be Thank You.

What a beautiful card! I love the bird and cage. It is just gorgeous! The rhinestones in the corner really set the card as well as the DP!
