I used the pretty birdcage from the Fly Free set, embossed it and cut it out...
...then dangled it down over this too big frame. There was one of my issues right there...needed it to be big enough for the cage, but then I felt it was too big for the card, and I didn't have enough room for a sentiment. Poo-ey, I say!! I ended up using a Papertrey Tiny tag for a tiny sentiment...since that was all I had room for!
My other issue was that these colors would be great for a "welcome baby" card...but this wasn't a "welcome baby" card now, was it?! They ended up a little too light and syrup-y sweet, I thought. Anyway, it is what it is, and I'm not a perfect card-maker, am I?! I, and my cardmaking, am a work in progress, and I'm o.k. with that! (Hope you are too, and will come back again anyway! ;)
Have a goodie!! Thanks again, Lisa, for the chance to win some sweet stamps!
