Farewell Birdie

Today Latisha Yaost was the featured stamper over on Split Coast. What beautiful work she does!

I chose her I Miss You card to CASE because it featured a birdcage and I've been wanting to use my Tim Holtz birdcage Sizzix die since I bought it a few months ago!

I turned my card to accomodate the size of the die cut birdcage, used different papers and punched an edge on CS instead of using a ribbon. I used a Waltzingmouse sentiment.

I recycled a beverage coaster from a restaurant for my birdcage. You can see the coaster in my pic. I then cut another cage with DP and adhered it to the coaster.

Today I went to my niece Katies' baby shower - she's due in Sept. It's so fun to see all the sweet little baby things!
