Bird Cage Easel Card

Happy Wednesday, crafty friends! I hope you're having a blessed week. I'm posting on the My Craft Spot blog today! :o)

Inspired by Kimberly's beautiful Music stamp set, I rekindled my love for easel cards. :o) This is part of my contribution for this month's I Feel the Love Project collection, where we are spreading love to elderly residents at an assisted care facility.
The bird cage easel card is a Lori Whitlock cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. I've had this file for quite some time, waiting for a special occasion. I thought it would make a lovely pairing with a musical sentiment. :o)
Included in the Music set are sweet little music notes, which I sporadically stamped around the sentiment with varying amounts of ink. I wanted a mix of bold and faded to coordinate with the Glitz Design papers.
Fluttering throughout the card are the gorgeous butterflies from the Jar Full of Flowers stamp set. They (and the birdies) are coated with Wink of Stella glitter for an elegant shimmer. Nestled beneath my Wild Orchid Crafts roses are Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful Flourishes and a sweet touch of Vanilla Bean crinkle ribbon.
I hope it brings joy to the recipient's heart. :o)
Thank you for visiting and have a blessed day! :o)
