It's your bird-day! card

Hello my crafty friends! I used 2 of my NEW carts April Showers and the Mother's Day Bouquet (and a background from Lacy Labels).
Here's what I came up with:
The card base was cut at 5 1/4" x 10 1/2" then scored, and folded to make a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" square card. First, I cut a piece of pink crepe paper, fan folded the sides, and attached it to my card using my "pink" atg gun!
 The green background was cut using the "flower2" from the Lacy Labels cartridge.
The bird and cage were cut at 4 1/2" using the April Showers cartridge. Next, I used a Zig 2 way glue pen on the bird, and then "sugared" it with ultra fine glitter. Then, I went over the glitter with Glossy Accents to give it an epoxy look, and add more dimension. Pop dots were used to "pop" the cage off of the card.
 The flowers were cut using the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge. The hot pink flowers are cut at 1 1/2" and 1 3/4". The pattern/brown flowers are cut at 1 1/2" and 1 1/4". The light pink flowers are cut at 1" and 3/4". I curled the edges with my scoring tool, layered them using glue dots, and then added a faceted bling to the middle of each one. Stampin Up dimensionals were used to "pop" up the flowers.
A big pink bow tied with bakers twine and "It's your bird-day!" were attached to the top of the cage. I used the MPS Punny-licious stamp set for the saying (Isn't too cute?!), and a SU punch for the sentiment.

Papers used:
*K & Company
*Stampin UP
*Recollections
*Ribbon-Stampin Up
Thanks for stopping by today!       <3 Kristy
