Anyway, back to the card. The papers are new First Edition papers called Summer Breeze. I finally cut the cage from Car Decals (it wasn't the one I wanted but what's a gal to do?!) using Papermania shimmer cardstock. The bird was cut from green shimmer cardstock and I cut another bird from patterned paper and adhered it with foam pads to the flourished bird (the solid bird should actually go behind). I punched some teeny flowers from patterned paper, added a pearl to the centres, then adhered them to the flourish. The completed bird was then adhered to the cage. The front of the card is made up of two panels, the top one edged with a border punch. Ribbon was wrapped around the border and secured behind. The panel was then matted and adhered to the card. I added a tag with Safmat sentiment and a Prima vintage flower. 'Karen' was cut from shimmer cardstock and adhered with foam pads above the ribbon/bow. A pearl eye on the bird completes the card.
