A little birdie told me...

The Play Date Cafe's colors for this week are Navy, School Bus and Grass. Here is my first card:
I first watercolored a background paper using LuminArte' in Bolivian Blue, Lemondrop and Kiwi. (The blue looks very violet in this picture, at least on my computer, but it is not.)  Then I stamped the French Script background stamp from SU using YoYo Yellow. Next I cut the bird cage and bird using a Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Die which I bought years ago but had never yet used. I stamped the sentiment from Verve's Small Phrases set using Versamark and SU's Gumball Green Embossing Powder and put it over the SU Daffodil Delight ribbon. Finally I hung the cage using an old clip from SU and added a few flowers (some SU, some Prima.) I used some SU paper from their "This and That Epic Day" collection for the background and then put the whole thing onto a piece of SU Midnight Muse cardstock.



  1. Super cute card! Love the bird cage and the flowers! Thanks for playing at The Play Date Cafe.
