Catch some magic!

Here's a card that uses an idea that's been on my mind since I got the Alterations Caged Bird die.

I teamed it with the Alterations Hanging Sign die to cage a fairy in the garden.

The fairy is Fairy Fosette (VB-336-J) from Third Coast Rubber Stamps. She was colored with Copic markers, then cut out, and caged.

The cage was cut from silver cardstock, then I added some score marks to make it look more dimensional. Foam adhesive was used as well.

The sign was diecut from white chipboard and embossed with an Alterations Woodgrain embossing folder.

The patterned paper is by The Memory Box. I thought it worked well with the theme of the card. There is no sentiment yet because I haven't decided who/what/how I'll use it. I figure that "Have a Magical Birthday", "Got Fairies", or something like that will work. Or not.

Thanks for visiting today. Hope your day is magical!
