Sweet Birds 2

I love this bird die from Concord & 9th and had to make another card with it!

I'll also enter this into these challenges:

Where Creativity Meets C9
Dies R Us Challenge #64 - Anything Goes Using Dies
Flickr LOVE!--Handmade Cards, ATCs January Challenge Anything Goes

This card uses another "never been used, but have had forever" die from TCW 4x6 Chickenwire die.  I used Distress Inks on the chickenwire and then added clear embossing powder for the look.    The sentiment is a die from My Favorite Things.  I really like using stamps and dies I've had for a long time and the flowers and branches from Heartfelt Creations was perfect.  I made the background with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks.

I wonder who will get this for their birthday? :)  Thank you so much for taking a look!
