Chevrons, Flowers and Stampin' Up!'s Aviary Bird Cages

First of all, thank you for all the well wishes for Holly's Birthday.  She's had a super day so far and is currently playing with her new purchase - an i pad which if you read yesterday's post she did a grand job of saving up for herself.  Very easy for Dad and I to put too the difference and get a case for it.  

I've really been wanting to play along with the new challenge blog  Fusion.  You can see the details below.  So whilst dot was occupied with her new toy and number one son was ensconced on the x box I snuck away and made this card.

Whisper White card base with Whisper White panel attached with Dimensionals.  I've made my chevrons with the Chevron Embossing Folder and Certainly Celery card stock.  I corner rounded the edges.  I then stamped my bird cages from Aviary in Calypso Coral.  I stamped little flowers inside using Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and So saffron.  The little flower comes from Create a Cupcake.  So many useful small items in this set.  I then fussy cut out the cages and attached them with Dimensionals.  The sentiment in Calypso Coral comes from Petite Pairs.

I've picked up on the chevrons from the sketch and the colours and flowers from the inspiration photo.

As we had a big feed at an all you can restaurant at lunch time, I think it will just be cake for tea!  Mmmmm cake.  Not made by me this time as she wanted a Percy Pig cake, so M and S did the honours.

See you next time.  x x

Edit:  Woops just remembered meant to add this in to CASual Fridays which is calling for Chevrons and Flowers.
