Ode to Cameo Coral...


I made another card for A muse Lounge's latest challenge, "Cut it Out".

My oldest has been asking for a bird lately. I would love to have one (we had a budgie when we were little & he was so cute & friendly), but they are soooo messy and there is no practical place to put one in our house. We have been visiting the birds at the pet store instead!

I have been playing a bit lately with the scalloped line stamp. I stamped it, cut it out and popped it up. I punched a hole in it and looped a few jump rings together to hang the birdcage from. A few strategically placed twinkle stickers finished it off nicely. Thanks for visiting!!

Here is what I used:

Stamps: A muse (birdcage, tiny bird, scalloped line, swinging day)
Paper: SU (cameo coral), PTI white
Ink: palette hybrid noir
Accessories: silver jump rings, pop dots, amuse twinkle stickers

I found your link to this card in the A Muse lounge and just love your take on the challenge! You have inspired me to pull out my A Muse stamps and create something for the challenge too! Hugs, Carly

This is really pretty! I don't use coral much, but with the birdcage it looks great.

I saw this card in the gallery at scs-I really like it and your stamping style-the scallop edge looks great with the bird cage hanging from it
