Challenge #217 - Shopping Our Stash - Put A Bird On It

Hello, Crafty Peeples!

I am so happy to be able to do a little creating this week.  After three weeks of "bed rest," I started looking forward to trips to the bathroom! :D)

This week at Shopping Our Stash, we are only asking that you "PUT A BIRD ON IT!"

I conceived this project as a "flip" card, but was not at all happy with the look of the bird cage, 
so I kept the flip fold, but opted to just glue the bird cage.
The fold gives the design a nice graphic.  I wanted a ribbon tie closure but that felt like overkill!

The papers are from the Graphic 45 Ladies' Diary Collection
 The Stamps are Gina K., and of course, the Bird and Cage Dies are Tim Holtz

Thanks for stopping by!
