CPS & CAS-ual Fridays

Hi there,

Well I have some rare 'me time' today so I have made this card very quickly (about 5 minutes) for two challenges this time. 
I am using this sketch from CPS-Card sketches.  I am also using this challenge from CAS-ual Fridays.  I made the background paper with Rangers Perfect Pearls Mist in Forever Blue on watercolour paper.  I then swiped the edges with Faded Jeans Distress ink.  The bird cage is a Hero Arts stamp.   The "table" is coloured with distress inks (I can't remember which ones) on water colour paper & cut with a Martha Stewart punch.  I used Copics Y35 & YR63 on the flower in the birdcage.

Thanks for stopping by & Happy crafting everyone xoxoxoxoxo
