No marking done - but a challenge entry complete!

Half term - done some housework, not managed to get my school work out the boot yet - eek Friday tomorrow. But I have done some crafting :). Amber has decided that she wants to be a florist when she's older so we went to Spalding Bulb Auction for some silk flowers so she could practice. It's a florists wholesalers amongst other things and a real treasure trove. I picked up a few bits for myself while we there including the flowers on my latest creation. Have designed this with the sketch from Cute Card Thursday in mind but I have strayed from the path a little. The decorative accent at the side is cut from a sizzix die, it is my favourite and the shape is from a nestie. The image is made from two Kanban clear stamps the birds and the cage are separate, I even managed to get the birds on the perch!! The bottom border was cut with a Martha Stewart punch. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out, now I need to work out how to produce a box/envelope but that can wait til another day.
