but it isn't coming easy to me.
I knew Valentine's was going to be a challenge.
The first thing I had in my head was the paper -
this Brocade digi paper from Pink Petticoat is so gorgeous.
Note to Liz Armstrong: If you ever branch out into wallpaper,
this design would look amazing in my bedroom ;-)
The next thing I used was the wooden bird cage from Crafty Emblies, which I spray painted silver.
The little, wooden birds were covered in a bright, flowery paper which just didn't work - so I glued them up and dipped them in some fine, silver glitter.
The banner came about by accident really. It was a shape left on my desk from a previous make and I just happened to have a sentiment that fitted it perfectly!
I added the ribbon to cover up the fact that, when I cut the paper, that edge didn't have a white border!
