Stamping 411 meets Color Throw Down

Here is my card for two different challenges. Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #171, & Color Throwdown #113
I wanted to make a card with my new stamp set 'Aviary' from Stampin' Up!, #120462. The colors for this challenge are perfect plum, early espresso, and very vanilla. I made my own craft ink with my perfect plum reinker. So the cages are heat embossed and then I stamped the birds. That way the birds look like they are in the cages, instead of just 'hangin' out'. :) My newest favorite thing, is the vintage wall paper embossing folder. I just love it! It gives any (and every) project a little pizzazz! I have to admit, I have fallen in love with this new width ribbon, too. At first I was like, what am I going to do with a ribbon that is only 1/8" wide? Come on, give me something to work with! But don't you just love it? It adds some texture to the card, without taking away from my beautiful cages! I also added some bling. Let's face it, a girl has to try real hard not to give her pretty card some sparkle!
Well, thanks for looking. As always, a comment really makes my day! But don't forget to post a comment on my 'Halloween Candy' entry and sign-up as a follower to enter the halloween blog candy give away!
