I am soooo super proud of my cousin who, last year, decided to follow her dream of becoming a pastry chef and recently quit her career in the corporate world and is now working as an intern in a bakery in California. I'm proud of her because I know that few people actually take that kind of leap and it's awesome. So, this card is for her, to applaud her recent move to CA.
I decided to try a Matchbox style card on this one and the bottom I actually made to look like a little drawer, using paper from DCWV Citrus stack and a brad from Basic Gray.
The birdcage is one from the Serenade cartridge, cut in black with one of the birds inside. I 'hung' the cage using real wire jewelry chain in black (I used this previously on a VD card). The 'Soar' cut and frame were cut at 2" from the Lacy Labels cartridge.
I cut some extra birds as I was experimenting and the ribbon was from a Target dollar bin set. I was sooo happy with the way this turned out and I liked the little drawer look at the bottom. I want to try it again with ribbon to tie it closed.
