It's that birdcage again!!

I'm loving this die and have lots of plans for it in the future. It was definately money well spent! I've made this card for another forum friend's birthday, I hope she's had a great day!

I've used Core-dinations Whitewash cardstock and run it through my Bigshot. It's then been sanded and the edges distressed. The birdcage has been embossed and I've rubbed some of the powder off before heat setting it. I've made flowers using my 3D flower die and have then given them the stickles treatment. The ferns have been die-cut using my new Little Claire's die.
