Caged Bird

Hello Blog Friends - thanks for stopping by today - it is always nice to know you have 'visited!' I m sharing a card today created with the free Prima stamp set that came with Australian Simply Cards #67 - for me it was 'love at first sight' and I may or may not have gone crazy stamping of images LOL!

The background white card is embossed using the Cabbage Roses Spellbinder® M-Bossabilities™ folder and the  Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.  I have sponged the embossed cabbage roses using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Rhubarb Stalk, using a Sponge Dauber

You can see the depth of the sponging in this close up - it adds such a lovely touch to this feminine card.  Lindy Glitz has been added to the 'bling' at the bottom of the birdcage, for added shimmer, this has been layered onto the Fancy Tags Two Spellbinders® Shapeabilities®, followed by the embossed layer.  All layering has been done using Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares.  The brown patterned frame layer is from Prima.

The bling is Want2Scrap 72Count - Pink Rhinestone - Self Adhesive.  Finishing off with a bunch of roses - it does not get more feminine than this.
