Hugs and Kisses (Pion Design/Green Tara)

I just couldn't wait to start playing with the new Pion Design collection "From My Heart 2" when it arrived this week. The collection is soooooo heavenly. I made this card with the 6x6 papers.

I have a confession... I don't own a die cutting machine, a sewing machine or any big fancy tools (other than a gazillion paper punches). I still even use my Creative Memories cutter for circles and ovals, LOL. Anyways, my friend Bonnie cut out a few shapes for me a while back, including this cute Tim Holtz birdcage.


I lightly crackle painted the cage and the bird, inked them and then dressed it all up with a bunch of Green Tara trims (lace, twisted pearl and tassel) and their gorgeous pink roses. I gently plucked a bit off my daughter's dress-up feather boa when she wasn't looking to adhere to the bird, shhh!


Thanks for stopping by today!

This is really lovely Vicky. Do you know I have this die and hardly ever use it but its coming out again now! I was wondering how you made the lovely fluffy bird wing then had a chuckle when I read about your daughter's feather boa! Bet you also pinch buttons from her dolls' dresses huh? LOL

Lisa said...

This is insanely pretty. The attention to detail on the birdcage is stunning....and the feather on your bird, well...don't get me started. LOL I love this card.
