I just love the new stamp set Aviary (clear mount item number 120462). It has cute little birds and stunning bird cages! I couldn't resist getting it. There are so many fun techniques with this set. My favorite is to heat emboss the bird cage. Which is what I did with this card. It made sure to make it look like the bird was INSIDE the cage and gives a shiny texture.
I also used some of the new Designer Paper Series (DSP). This one is called Woodland Walk (item number 117389) When next to the Elegant Eggplant card stock, the Chocolate Chip polka dots actually look a little purple-ish, (there are actually 2 polka dot colors, Wild Wasabi is in there too) It gave the DSP a whole new look that I wasn't expecting at all!
Hope you enjoy!
