This weeks card for Make My Monday.

On Make My Monday this week we are using this photo for inspiration,

I think its a great photo but I just could not get my head around it at all. This is my third try at a decent interpretation. Please go over to Make My Monday and have a look at the amazing work that the rest of the team have done as mine has not done this justice at all.

For my card I used a die cut bird, cage and swirl that I had been sent from a fellow blogger. I coloured the swirl and bird with a pink iridescent acrylic ink, then backed the cage with green paper and added some pink brads. I used the same green paper to make the flowers that I attached to the swirl, and also to mat the card. The edge of the white mat I cut with a paper edger, I think its a Stamping Up one that was bought for the card club but I am not sure. The cage was attached with foam pads to make it stand out a bit more, but the swirl and flowers were glued flat to the card.

Like I said please go to Make My Monday and see some stunning work done by the rest of the team.

Thanks for reading,

I too like your card Cath, we all interpret visual aids differently. I think you have grasped the essence of the photo and your colours are beautiful. Caz

You may have felt this was not the same as the photo, but I actually like it better. I think the birdcage, the swirl, and those lovely roses made this a perfect interpretation of the photo. You did a SUPER job.
