Welcome back to day 3.  Thank you for all the kind comments and feedback you’ve given.  I just love the sweet talk!

Today’s card features not only the Birdcages stamp set, but also yesterday’s featured set, Birds of the Orient.  I stamped the images onto White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I stamped the sentiment separately with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with clear powder.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Seedless Preserves, Stormy Sky, and Tumbled Glass to color the page.  I added some blue bling to give the bird in flight some motion, and then matted in black and finished off with some DCWV cardstock for the base
