CAAH - #1 - Follow the sketch Challenge

Hi Everbody!

Well I finally finished all but one lot of paperwork before I decided that I had deserved a well earnt break. So I decided to make my card for the very first Card and a Half Challenge, where we had to follow the below sketch.

I feel a little bit slack because I was really inspired by Tania B's entry and had decided to use the same images - the Kaszazz birdcage and birdie stamps. Anyway onto the card......

I am absolutely stoked with how this card has turned out. Did you notice my little tag that says Happy Bird-Day?????? - I treated myself to the Ezy-Press Tag dies in my last order.

Materials used are:
4215 SB Bazzill Basics - Bahama
4778 SB Paper Enchanted - Alpine Dream
4779 SB Paper Enchanted - Cherry Blossom
9127 Card Pack - A5 250gsm (100) - White
