True Love

While shopping online for strictly paper the other day I found this gorgeous set of stamps from Bo Bunny and funny enough it just jumped right into my online basket and made it all the way to the checkout, through the checkout, through the post and landed right here on my craft table ... so much for just shopping for paper! Anyway here is a card I made with the set - I followed the sketch from Mojo Mondays #194, and I am also submitting it for Creative Cards - wings - the 2 little gorgeous birds! and Paper Playtime - love theme ...

here is a close up of the bird cage hanging ...

I love adding a little bit of mechanics to my card and one of my many favourite 'things' to do on a card is to 'hang' things - I have a small collection of split rings to do this! To make my little birdcage I stamped the cage on acetate, fussy cut and made a door, I then secured it to yellow card stock and fussy cut again, I stamped the birds on the yellow card and again on white card and blue paper and fussy cut and attached to the image and voila! a sweet little embellishment!
materials - Bazzill Sunbeam, Whirlpool and Kraft card; MME Stella & Rose Gertie papers; Bo Bunny 'crush' stamps; Sassafras Lass 'stitched borders' stamps; Stazon timber brown ink; Kaisercraft rhinestones; Spellbinders Labels 4 dies; Provocraft circle dies; Twine; Making Memories Vintage buttons; 1/8" eyelets; 7mm split ring.
thanks for looking.

A GREAT card!! Loved it with just the bird cage being in the window, then was surprised at how detailed the cage is. TFS!
