It was my very good friend’s birthday yesterday so I needed to create a very special card.  As Sarah loves her birdcages I thought I would create a card using the free set of stamps I got earlier this year from my Creative Stamping mag.

I started by die cutting an oval with my Spellbinders die and stamping my birdcage and bird, and drew on the chain.  I then used the ‘waste’ card I had cut it out of as a template and lightly drew the oval in pencil on my card piece.  This was my guide to stamping my oval.  I used a long flowery border stamp and worked my way around the oval.  Every now and then I placed the oval back over the top so I could see what would peek out behind it.  Sep12a

Next I stamped my row of flowers down the side of my card blank.

Everything has been coloured using Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks.  It was then mounted onto a hot pink mount to finish it.

I am pleased to say that Sarah loved her card as much as I did!

Happy Crafting – and again happy birthday Sarah!
