Love when a punch or image fits other sets!! The Bird Cage in the shape of an upside down badge caught my eye first in this Stamp set. I vaguely remember a Lace covered Birdcage at my Grand Mother's House at the farm. I was 4 years old when they moved to town, she had a Canary, I'm sure it had a name, but I have no idea what it was?
The paper is 'Affectionately Yours" a lovely pattern of Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake. I also used the embossing folder "Floral Affection" to accent the sentiment, which was stamped and punched using the "Thoughtful Banners" Bundle.
You will see a bit of Grunge around the edges of this card. "Touches of Texture" is a fabulous new set which you will see more of this week. The Little Mint Macaron Bird was punched with the "Tree Builder" punch. The Mint Macaron Lace is retired but I could not resist the lacy look on this Bird cage!
And here is another version.
