Happy Bird Day

Hello bloggers!   I started with a white background and cut the Birdcage die with a piece of white card on top and a piece of Arctic Blue card underneath.  The white card cut the entire birdcage while the blue card just cut the outline. I cut the Parrot out of white card and used markers to colour him.  I glued the parrot to the blue backing piece then glued the birdcage die over the top.  I cut a multi-layered frame using the Double Stitched Ovals.  I cut a wider white base and a thinner black frame on top.  I attached the piece together with mounting foam and the attached it to the backgroun.  I added the birdcage into the centre with mounting foam.  Using the Hibiscus die set, I added three red flowers accented with green leaves to opposite sides of the frame.  I cut the Happy Bird Day sentiment from the Parrot die set  in black and glued it to the bottom left side of the birdcage die cut.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4"  in size. 

Just a quick note to let you know that the July Christmas Die Release Blog Launch starts here at 6am tomorrow morning!  Looking forward to seeing you here then!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I love this gorgeous card. The colours are beautiful and your colouring perfect. Love the way you have hooked the parrot's beak over the bar of the cage, a very parrot-y thing to do :-)
Will part 2 of the Christmas launch help cool us down tomorrow? I hope so.
Keep cool and stay hydrated everyone.
