Wisteria Birthday Birdies

Hi there! I have a quick card to post today, I created it for TCM's first birthday bash challenge! It was a sketch challenge, here's the sketch:

Fun, isn't it? Here's my card using Tweet of You!
The card base is Wisteria Wonder, love that color and don't play with it enough! I ran a piece of white cardstock through my bigshot wiht the big polka dot Cuttlebug folder. I sewed that piece down and then added the rest!
I stamped the bird cage in gray ink from Impress and then stamped some birds onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock, cut them out, and mounted them on the bird cage. I added some roses, rhinestones, and stickles to really bling this image out;)
The sentiment and tag stamp are from Timeless Tags. I stamped the tag onto a die cut tag (from Grommet Tags Nesties) in Wisteria Wonder ink and then stamped the sentiment. I added some black gingham ribbon and a couple bows and that about finishes this card up! It's always easy for me to go overboard with the embellishing so I have to dial it back sometimes and stop myself, haha! 

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you're having a wonderful Sunday!
