Hi Again!

It is so good to get back to crafting again!  This is my second post for the
day.  Stay tuned because I have one more post after ths one!  This card
is being entered for the Inspired by Stamping Challenge.  I love the
inspiration colors of blue, yellow, and peach.

The inspiration so lovely...

I knew I had some beautiful Prima paper on hand to make this card.
I fussy cut a little bird and place it behind the bird cage.  Little
Prima flowers were placed on the bird cage.  The die labels were
sponged with tea dye ink.  Buttons, gems, and ribbon to finish off
the card.  Ok...onto one more post for today.  And, it's a fun exciting one...
stay tuned!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Take care, hugs!
