Hello lovely friends :)
These must be the worst photo's I've ever taken of a card and unfortunately I can't try again as it was collected on Friday for the wedding on Saturday.
This must also be a record  for the time it has taken to do this blog  post.....this computer is ancient and is driving be bonkers !!

The brief for this card was cream, silver, a touch of purple with a birdcage theme so out came this super die cut from the lovely Sarah at Craft all Day.   I used a silver dabber on it which gave it a nice rustic look.

The main BP has a pretty flowery, slightly embossed design on it.  I made the flowers from this too.
The torn panel is embossed with an M-Bossabilities folder.
The bird and cage, topped with a cream seam binding double bow and heart shaped button are layered  on to muslin

It took three goes to make the envelope, lol.  
I didn't want more ribbon as a pull for the message so I 'sparkled up' a heart and added a small gem instead. I used stickles Diamond  and it shows pink here :/

The flower 'arrangements' are a mix of Marianne Creatables dies and flowers from stash
