Pink, Blue & Brown Birdcage

Here is my second for tonight, and the first one I made.
 Again I used free papers from Card Making magazine, this time Nancy Watt, and cut out the birdcage. I mounted it onto some duck egg blue card and added half a flourish from Nesties flourishes set which I chalked in blue, then brown to give an antique look. I finished with a Papermania sentiment and drew a black border using a fineliner......first time I've tried this.
Annoyingly, I 'blobbed' the pen in the top left corner, so I had to cover it up! Hence the 3 tiny pink gems. They didn't look right on their own though so I matched them in the bottom right corner too.

I am entering it into 2 challenges......
Less is More (hello again!) - Off Centre
Colour Create - Pink, Blue & Brown

Thanks for looking...off to comment on some challenge entries now!

  3. Love this card! The gems perfectly hide your pen blob (doesn't that drive you crazy when it happens???) and look like a perfect design addition. TFS your LIM challenge card!

  4. I did wonder about the gems Lizy.. but all was explained!
    I like the idea of using the flourish as a hanger for the cage, but I think I would have gone with the same colour as the cage... the hanger almost looks more of a focus than the cage.
    However I think it's another super card.

  12. Hi Lizy. The birdcage drew me in. I had to smile because I thought those gems were a really nice and well-considered addition BEFORE I read your post. :-)
