Jubilee, Shares and Offers

It's a Jubilee kind of day.  So a second card for Less is more which for this week is Red, White and Blue. 

My inspiration for the card came from seeing a wonderful display in a florists window.  She was hanging bird cages in the shop window shaped like crowns.  Then filling them up with little pot plants.  I love seeing all the fab decorations in the shops and some of the unique interpretations of the Jubilee theme. 

I've used Aviary for my bird cages stamped in Pacific Point.  Look at the little blue bird in the corner.  He's wondering why he's been chucked out his home for flowers to go inside instead!  The flowers are actually from the little flower in Up Up and Away.  I used my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker to just colour the flower and miss out the Miss You sentiment.  Markers are great for doing this and with Stampin' Up!s colour families you know the marker will match the card stock.  I used my ruler and the pen nib end to draw the line for the cages.  I added a Basic Rhinestone to each cage for a little bling.  I then inked up, again using a marker, my sentiment.  This is from a retired hostess set - Afterthoughts.  Using the pen this meant I could just ink up "It's a" and then put "Celebration" in the middle of the card.  Do you see the dots underneath?  Bit of a cover up of an ink smudge but I think I got away with it!

I'm also going to enter my card in at CAS-ual Fridays which for this week is to add a bit of bling. 

Now I promised yesterday to put up the flyers from the wonderful promotions we have on just now.  So here they are in a little more detail.
