Cutesy Gilded Birdcage Birthday Card

Hi Dreamers!
It's Cutesy today on the Dreamer's blog.  I picked up some new digis and have been playing around with them.  I can always use a cute birthday card.  So, I made this one with Victorian Birdcage from Meljens.

As this is a digi, I printed the image on white CS and colored with Copic Markers.  I wanted a gilded cage, so I used a gold metallic pen to color the bars of the cage.  

I added a velvet ribbon and Stickles glitter glue.   The sentiments on the inside and outside are from Stampin' Up.  Don't you think the bird is singing "Happy Birthday to you"?  I think so.  


Just a nice simple inside with plenty of room for a little note.

And, how about a few fun Challenges
Meljens: Birthday
Marker Pop: bright colors
Cute Daisy May: die cuts
Craft your passion:anything goes
The Pink Elephant: ribbon

Tomorrow, I will be posting a Mini Book for the Blockhead's Technique Challenge.  Here is a little sneaky peek of the Mini Book.

See you then!!  Love ya.
