I came across The Play Date Cafe website about a week ago and they have some really nice cards on their site. I decided to participate in Challenge 21 which is about Spring. Even though it’s not Spring here in Australia, I thought the colours would work really well with my Saleabration set ,Happy Moments and I have been meaning to create a card with the bird in the cage, but I havent gotten around to it, thus far. For this Challenge, I used the Stampin Up colours Barely Banana, Pixie Pink and Pink Pirouette. I started with a base card made from Whisper White cardstock. I then embossed a piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock using the Cuttlebug folder Devine Swirl. I adhered this to the base card and then embossed a small piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Script Embossing folder. I adhered the Embossed Whisper White cardstock to the Pink Pirouette cardstock and then I began to stamp. I stamped 6 flowers from the Eastern Bloom set using Barely Banana, Pixie Pink and Pink Pirouette. I then stamped the Bird Cage from the Saleabration Happy Moments set using Chocolate Chip ink on to a piece of So Saffron DSP. I finished stamping, by stamping the Birthday greeting from the Sincere Salutations Stamp set using Pixie Pink. I then punch out the Birthday Greeting with the Large Oval Punch and I also punched a piece of scrap So Saffron DSP with the Scallop Oval Punch to use as backing for the punched out Birthday Greeting. I trimmed the bird-cage and the flowers and adhered them to the embossed cardstock. For some of the flowers I used foam pads to add a little dimension to the flowers. I then adhered the Birthday greeting using foam pads. There you have my take on this weeks Challenge. Oh, almost forgot, I finished off with a Rhinestone on the top of the bird-cage.
