BBTB2 - Birdcage

Happy Monday!

Another start of another week :)

Hope you are all well and adjusting to Daylight Savings!

Bitten by the Bug 2

Today over at BBTB2 we have a new
challenge starting. We want to see you use
a birdcage on your projects.

I decided to use the Songbird cartridge for this challenge.
I don't use this cart that often, but found this cut under the
Perch Creative Feature and thought it would work well.

I cut it at 4" out of some shimmery gold cardstock.
My pattern papers are from American Crafts.
I did use Elegant Edges for my mat.
The Pearls are from Recollections.

I hope that you will join us for this challenge over at BBTB2!!!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

  2. Very pretty card Emily! I love those background papers and I love the mat shape. Your bird house is fabulous and I love that you cut it out in gold shimmery card stock. Hugs, Brenda

  3. I love the papers you used, nice paper combo. The shape of your mat is looks so wonderful and the birdcage is the perfect focus of your card.
