a little bird told me ...

Hi all
 I fancied a change of shape so i  have made this card i have not made one before and i am pretty pleased with how it turned out...It has a birdcage stamp on  it which i have embossed using wow gold Embossing powder it is so shiny in real life.....The sentimentt is also embossed using the same powder..The embossing folder i used for the background is swiss dots by cuttlebug.
The bird was made using a punch from SU ,The embossing folder on the imside is a darice one ...it is gorgeous all full of swirls and butterflies...
The gems,ribbon and gold  metallicstring iare all from meiflower crafts
The butterfly at the top of the heart is made by a punch from studio 24.
The heart shape aperture in the middle is a go kreate die.
The flowers are die cuts from kanban.
The leaves are a memory box die
The gold mirri is from my stash
