Bird Cage Birthday Card & bew goodies

I made this card for my friends birthday I wanted it to be really special. I fell in love with this birdcage and bird stamp set  at a recent craft show I went to and for £9.99 I had to have it

I even decided to do and insert for the card, which I don't often do, but have decided to do more often, I also lined the inside of the envelope to match the insert

I also promised to show friends my new craft goodies I got so many didn't I do well I will have so much fun playing with them The last photo was from every craft a pound everything except the Peel off the rest cost £10 if you got 10 items you got two free...bargain, oh I do love a bargain The Distressed Ink Pads were a birthday gift from my husband.

This card is brilliant Alma, I saw this set and liked them then never bought. Wished I had now, mind you don't think I could do such a great card as this. xx
