Birdcage Birthday

Hi friends!  Today's my birthday and I'm kicking it off with a massage and then a fun kid{less} day with Mark.  Should be a lot of fun!  Speaking of birthdays, I've got another birthday card to show you.  This one uses the July Week 4 Viva la Verve sketch by Janelle.  I just LOVE the shorter card front with a border edge.

I did my border by lopping off part of the card and then adhering the Scalloped Trim Trio  die cut to the top of it.  The patterned paper is from the Echo Park Here & Now collection and I added a smokey slate piece of corrugated cardstock to the inside layer of the card so it would show through.

The stamps are from the Doodled Occasions stamp set and I colored the heart door with a pistachio pudding marker and accented with glossy glaze.  Two bows using ribbon from the Stormy Skies Ribbon Collection are glued together for my ribbon treatment and a few smoky rhinestones finish things off.

I hope you have a fantastic day!  Thanks for stopping by!
