My Time Made Easy Pretty Patterns #7!

Hello peeps and welcome to the My Time Made Easy Challenge Blog Pretty Pattern #7 challenge!

We have a fun sketch for you to try this week, so let's get started ... shall we!

The sketch is pretty simple in and of itself, so I wanted to use large embellishments to make a statement!  First I cut out the Caged cut file using my Cricut and some pretty Kraft paper.  I used the Singing Silhouette stamp set to stamp the cage on the cut out as well as the nest and cute little pink bird!  The ric-rac trim was cut with a die from My Favorite Things using the Love Notes paper.  I added a pretty organza flower, some trinket pins, pearls and glitter to add a bling factor to my design.

The base of my card was made using some paper from the Sensational Staples line and the gorgeous sentiment was stamped using the Bold Botanicals stamp set.  I embossed the background paper using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder from SU! and lightly inked over the raised impressions with pink paint.  Some vintage trim, satin rouched ribbon, a paper flower and Vintage Winter White Shabby Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop finish off this pretty little card!

Be sure to check out the BLOG for the other teamies inspiration projects and don't forget to stop by the My Time Made Easy DESIGNER'S GALLERY for loads more creativity and inspiration to get your juices flowing!

I can't wait to see what you create with this fun sketch!  Thanks for peeking in today :)
