1.0 Sarah's Stamping Style: Caged Birds

Caged Birds

Today's card was inspired by a beautiful creation made by Jami Sibley. I can't find the exact card on her blog as I had just saved it to my hard drive, but it must be there! Anyway, go over and check out all of her beautiful work.

I changed the card up a little, using a different stamp set, ribbon, flowers and embellishments. I used two of my faves on this card, Aviary stamp set and Melon Mambo! I would have liked the black birdcages to be darker and more definite. Maybe I should have used black embossing powder!

I teamed the Melon Mambo with some Crumbcake and Black CS and added some beautiful Polka Dot Melon Mambo ribbon.

I punched the sentiment out using the Decorative Label Punch.

I made this for a dear friend's birthday! I haven't seen her yet to give it to her, so it will be belated. Hopefully she doesn't read this blog first and guess it is her!

Any Questions? Just ask!
Thanks for stopping by today.
