Chic Boutique Bird Cage

Here's my second card using Chic Boutique.  You can find the first one I posted HERE.  Wow, can I just say that I'm LOVIN' this gorgeous stamp set!  Here's what I made using the bird cage stamp to create a completely different look.

See what I mean?  This set is much more versatile than I had first imagined!  My card began with the color scheme Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, Rose Red and Bermuda Bay.  The bird cage is stamped on Whisper White card stock with Basic Gray ink, then colored in with Stampin' Write Markers.  I also did a little spritzing with my Spritzer Tool and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Marker.   Don't forget that we have In Color Stampin' Write Markers this year, available only until June 30th!  I love that I can get a completely coordinated look with matching markers and card stock!  I tore the top right-hand corners and added some Rose Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.  The sentiment is from Curvy Verses, one of my "go to" stamp sets for perfect greetings.  The flower is made with the Big Shot and Birds & Blooms Sizzlits 4-Pack Dies, and I added a Square Ice Rhinestone Brad in Turquoise for a touch of bling.  I also used a Bone Folder to curl the petals of the flowers up and adhered them with Dimensionals.  The touch I LOVE is the paper piercing!  I cut out an additional large flower and used it as a template, then paper pierced around it at the top of the card using my Mat Pack and Paper Piercing Tool!  What do you think?  Have I convinced you that you just have to have Chic Boutique?!
