Pink, Red, White and Pearls

With not much time to spare, I've joined in on the Play Date Cafe Color Challenge, Red, White & Pink............ and my friend Hel's Sunday Stamper Challenge, Pearls. Slowly, but surely this developed into a piece that will hang on my wall of fame. First cuz I made my first stamp out of Sizzix dies.........yeppers, the bird cage is Tim's, and it works like a charm. And then cuz I'm happy with the outcome, that really counts now, doesn't it! Here are the colors...

...and here is my card! As you can see, the bird cage stamped beautifully! The photo is a lot pinker than the actual piece, but I can't seem to get it right, sorry. I used the Kissed with a Twist tech on it, from the TJNL, using pink & red....can you imagine how kewl that would look silver & rust! Stamps are from Artistic Outpost and Stampers Anonymous. My DH wanted to know what the 2 red oblong thingies were...so I thought I might tell you that they are red, not blue!, Robin's eggs, lol. Thanks for stopping, hugz

I take it you watched the same video that I watched with making the stamps? Did you use fun foam or something else! I have that on my list, but never think of it! We sure love that birdcage! Great job Gerrie, love the pinks!
