Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - Kylie's sketch

Woohoo! It is time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy challenge and this fortnight we have the most gorgeous sketch for you to follow by my lovely friend Kylie! I loved playing with this sketch so much!! I have used papers from MME's Hazel paper pad and another of Whiff of Joy's new mini stamps, so this card is another small one!
As soon as I saw this little bird I had the idea of putting him in a bird cage and Kylie's sketch then gave me the perfect layout for it!! I have painted the chipboard cage with white acrylic paint. The cage is by Maya Road and the brad which attaches it to the card is from Whiff of Joy.
When you swing the cage to the side you can see the cute little bird and his message!! I have hand written the I and U and the heart is a "waste" heart from a Martha Stewart punch. The punched edge was created with a Martha Stewart punch.
I have added various flowers from my stash along with a chiffon ribbon and some heart pins. The kraft leaves were cut with a Whiff of Joy die and the heart border along the edge of the card is also a Whiff of Joy die.
I added a small piece of chain above the birdcage so that it looks like it is attached. The lace and pearls are from my stash.
The "heart" word tag was a bargain find from the autumn NEC and I used some more lace to create some tails.
I Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy Challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's amazing creations with Kylie's sketch! Thanks for looking! x
