I found another shape to use as a base card whilst flicking through the Child's Year cartridge. There are quite a few cards on the cart but I love the scalloped oval on the monogram feature (I use it all the time!) and tried a few sizes before settling on one to make a base card with. I cut two scalloped ovals at 8" and joined them together at the top. This shape doesn't nest so I settled for plain ovals for the mats. I cut another 8" scalloped oval from green paper but it didn't cut too well- a few of the scallops were snagged- so I went around the edges with a green inkpad after it was glued to the card base, and I'm really pleased with finished result. I used freebie NitWits papers from Creative Cardmaking for the oval mat. I cut a birdcage and stand from silver mirri and glossy white card. The birdcage was attached to the stand with a dab of PVA then the complete stand was adhered to the front of the card over a punched ribbon trimmed border. The top of the birdcage was embellished with some teeny WOC roses and a large Prima rose was adhered to the ribbon on the border. 'Dream' was cut from purple glittercard shadowed with green cardstock, then adhered to the bottom of the card with foam pads. A smattering of pearls completes the card.
