Come and see what I've done with it:
I rather liked the white and pink against the dark background so the Always Artichoke card stock was my starting point along with the gorgeous birdcage from Nature Walk which I embossed in white. I stamped leaves (from the tree in Hopeful Thoughts) over the top to add a bit of detail to the background.
I needed a bird as my Thing With Wings and what better bird than the one from the hostess set Silhouette Sentiments! She's also embossed in white giving her a dove-like appearance. You can see in this photo how I added a little So Saffron ink to the top of the Artichoke card stock to tie in with the photo, and can you see the pearl embellishing the top of the cage? I used a medium one from the Basic Pearls sheet for that and some of the tiny ones to decorate the centres of my flowers.
I am a huge fan of this flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack - and here's another way to use it: snipping between the petals gives the flowers this delicate, dimensional look. I was also rather pleased with the subtle sort of lacy look at the bottom of the Artichoke panel - it's been sponged with Whisper White craft ink and then over-stamped with an image from Baroque Motifs.

What on earth has happened to the weather? I have been wearing boots and jumpers since I got back from Devon and yesterday the heating went on - although that probably had something to do with a certain young person leaving the door open!
Thanks for visiting me today. I'll be back tomorrow and would be very pleased if you'd join me again!
