Playing with my new goodies

I finally managed to get motivated and had a little play with some new goodies - hope you like the finished result. This card is for a family member celebrating their 70th birthday at the weekend. We are invited to the party!  I used Bazzill Bling purple card to mount the birds/cage on and had to use the reverse as it was the only dark purple that I had.

The heart shapes are from the smaller birdcage die in the Bird Sanctuary Shapeabilities set.

Purple card - Bazzill Bling
Silver Mirri card, ribbon & gems from stash
DPs - Dovecraft back to Basics II
Sentiment - LOTV Circular Sentiments stamped in Black Memento

Tools used:
Nestabilities Plain & Scalloped Circles
Nellie Snellen Die - MFD 020
Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Bird Flourishes S4-326
                                                 Bird Sanctuary   S5-033
