Here's another posting - a card I made for two challenges - but I totally missed entering the one at Card Patterns CPS140  -  Here's the sketch (I missed).  

But, I'm on time for the color challenge at CR84FN42 

Here's my card

I was inspired by the black stripes in the center photo as well as the flowers.  I thought about embossing the base layer but then I thought it might be too much.

Details:  GKD CS Innocent Pink, Ivory and Black Onyx.  I used a TH Alterations Die for the cage and bird. First cutting the cage in the black onyx then rubbing it with Metallic Rub on "purple" which gave it a pink tone.  I then painted it with "Peach" Creative Inspirations paints, glued on some flowers from my stash after wrapping the top porting with gold cord.  The scalloped edge was also from my stash and I layered that against an ivory cs embossed with a CB snowflakes ef.  The bird was cut from American Craft POW glitter paper Carmel, purchased at the local AC Moore store.  

This is my last posting for today!!!  No, really....I mean it! I've got more, but I'll do that tomorrow!  Enough's enough, right?

Have a great weekend.
