I considered submitting this to a magazine because I like it so much but then they announced it was "Miracle" month at www.bigredscraps.ning.com so I changed my mind and I'll share it over there. If you've never visited Big Red Scraps, take a moment to check out all the gorgeous Close To My Heart creations.
There's a lot going on with this card but it still gives me a serene feeling. The main stamp set I used was the Sophia WOTG set. LOVE these birds and related stamps. The music stamp is from the Universal Background stamp set. To make the bird cage stand out, I stamped it directly over the background in Black
Archival ink, then I used clear glass all over the cage to give it dimension. The main bird was stamped with 3 ink colors and cut out then popped up with foam adhesive.
