Creative Expressions - Home Tweet Home

I am a bit late posting my latest sample using Sam Poole's lovely Birds set for Creative Expressions. I wanted to use the bird cage this week as it is such a pretty one, The background paper was one I found in my scrap box. It is an old Basic Grey piece but I liked the colour and that set the theme for the whole project.

I used toffee Versafine to stamp onto the paper to create my background. I then used Archival Coffee for the birdcage centre piece and cut out using Spellbinder Labels 9. I added toffee and coffee swirls around the edges. All this talk of toffee is making me hungry!!

I added a nice bit of ribbon near the base of the card and stamped "Home Tweet Home" in coffee ink. Then as a finishing touch I stamped the bird cage onto a bit of shrink plastic to hang at the bottom of the label. A few gems to add a touch of bling and it's done.
I hope you are having a good week. I had a day off work today which was nice. But back to normal tomorrow. Better go and get my uniforms ironed!!
