Birdcage Birthday Card...

Hey Ya'll,
I wanted to share the details with you on the Imagine Challenge Card.  I made this up for Audrey Frelix' Birthday (belated).  If you don't know Audrey, check out her Blog.  I also entered this into a Cricut Circle Challenge.  For the challenge, you had to use a background paper from your imagine, as well as three cuts.
 Everything on this card is from Lori's Garden.  The Birdcage is cut at a height of 5.00.  The roses are from the cartridge as well.  The blue flower is flood filled with papers from the cartridge, but cut from Mother's Day Bouquet.  I used a stylus to shape the petals of the flowers and added a gem in the center.  I used the Happy Birthday stamp from the Close to my Heart - Art Philosophy collection and just cut the label shape using a straight cutter and a rounded corner punch.
 I used lots of stickles and lots of glossy accents throughout the card.  I also used the sewing machine on the edge of the script mat and added some velvet ribbon to accent.
I just used a white mat on the inside.  Overall, I was really pleased with the card and I think that Audrey really liked it.  I would love to know what ya'll think of it and if you visit Audrey's Blog - Cute and Some, please say "Happy Belated Birthday" for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
