PDCC36 - Red bird . . .

This card is based on the Play Date Cafe Challenge #36 - Use Pink, White and Red for a card plus the PDCC design team issued an 'insider challenge' to one another to design something using birdcages, or to be exact,Tim Holtz's Birdcage Die Cut from Sizzix. Since I just got that diecut I decided to highjack that part of the challenge too!
These colors are not ones I would ever go to on my own - I would definitely replace the pink with a different color. But that is what a challenge is all about - going out of our comfort zone to try new things.
What I couldn't capture in the photo is the fact that the pink background is very shimmery due to my new Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist that I sprayed over the birdcage that I cut out. The Glimmer Mist is part of my Stamping Royalty prizes - Funny how something that I would never purchase is the first thing that I used! I like the little pun I was able to sneak in this card - "Just A Note" - get it?? hee hee
