Altered birdcage

Hi all
I am home from my hols feeling rested and ready to craft ...I had a fab time ,visited wonderful places and ....missed my crafting lol
Here is a birdcage I have made using an mdf chipboard kit I bought from my local craft shop ...[In house crafts and interiors on milford haven marina]...The birdcage comes in kit form and is buff coloured ready to alter ...It is made by candy box crafts.. this a is the smaller version of the two they make.
I glued it all together before painting it then  I used acrylic white paint on the birdcage components ,I simply added premade flowers from mulberry crafts  die cut some butterflies and leaves using my cheery lynn dies  added  some organza ribbon and gems from meiflower crafts.. the bow was made using my Craft-Dee BowZ maker.
