Sing Your Song

 Hello!  Happy Grandparent's Day!

I have a card to share today that's really a different style for me.  What do you think?  I used my Gypsy to make a card base and welded a birdcage shadow to the edge.  The shadow cut is from Serenade cartridge. 

This is how the card looks laying flat.  I added a strip of lace from a bag of goodies a friend gave me.  I  distressed the edges with rose pink and antique linen.  As you can see I need some practice on that!  :)This sentiment is my own and computer generated.  The lables are Just Rite Floral Ovals.  The charm is from my stash. 

Here is another version of the card with a sentiment from Just Rite stamps.  I may use this for a friend who will be moving.  I also added another strip of the ribbon across the lace.

This stamp is from the Christmas Wishes set.  Obviously this isn't a Christmas card, but I really like the font.

 The birdcage and bird are from Lori's Garden Imagine cartridge.  I used all the layers and changed the papers from blue to pink.  I had some fun playing with that!  I'm still pretty much a novice with the Imagine. 

Anyway, I'm please with how it turned out.  I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
