Big Wish


Hello everyone! I wanted to make this card for the Birthday Sundaes challenge #15, Stars and Stripes, and I have always loved the little bird on the Four Legged Friends cart. So, I thought, "you're a bird, it's your birthday, what would you wish for?" For the cat to be in the cage, of course!! I used Four Legged Friends for all the cuts except the star, which came from Don Juan. The cage was cut out of grunge paper, painted with Distress Crackle Paint, then inked with Ditress Ink to give a "wicker" feel. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but the background paper is adhesive backed fabric paper that I bought at Michaels half off. Added some vintage seam binding that Joy gave me for a bow, and topped it off with a vintage button from my stash. I am also entering this in the Monday challenge at My Craft Spot. What do you think?
