Bird in Birdcage

I like finding craft materials in Sales. I found the bird in a sale in W H Smiths and put it away as I knew I could use it for a card at some point.  A friend asked me to make a card for a teenager who likes birdcages.  I found just the birdcage I wanted on google images I printed it off cut it out using a scalpal and coloured in the black lines with a black pen to make it stand out more. I used purple card for the background. I stuck a piece of raffia on for the branch then I stuck the bird on. I attached the birdcage to the card using lots of small sticky pads so it would stick out. Next time I am thinking of cutting the top of the card to the shape of the birdcage.
