Etsy Inspired - Shabby Birdcage


Here's a weekend card project that I just completed. There's kind of a shabby chic feel to it.

I was inspired to make this card from the Etsy Inspired Challenge this week. I visited the EmenGee Designs shop on Etsy and absolutely love the Bird in a Cage mini clasp purse.
I overlayed embossed paper over brown cardstock and continued from there. The 3 small pink flowers in the corner are from Making Memories and are actually made of metal. I adhered the birdcage on top of an Anna Griffin journal tag before adhering it to the card. The birdcage is a Recollections brand dimensional sticker.

I also added a chipboard sentiment from Me & My Big Ideas along with some pink patterned ribbon.

I may keep this one for myself because I love the chocolate and pink color combination.
