This card is nothing short of incredible! You are so skilled at delicate paper-work! I couldn't believe how intricate the flowers were (especially their centers). I also love how you made the cage seem to bow out as if it were really dimensional to accommodate the beautiful bird inside. I know you said you struggled with how to embellish it, but you nailed it! It is stunning and I applaud your artistic eye and all the wonderful little details you included in this piece. Thank you for sharing it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
