Well, as I was awarded a 'Top 5 Funkette' award last month on the Get Funky challenge blog, I really thought I ought to have another go, though I am leaving it a bit late this month.
I also wanted to test out my new Gypsy machine and spent ages playing with circles to create the card and all the layers for this card, though it worked brilliantly and the card came together in no time. The stamp is from a Kanban set that was the TSV on QVC last year some time. I just had to play with the freebie backing paper from Funky Hand and used glossy accents on all of the red hearts (could have been a bit neater with that!). I've used another favourite of mine to create the copper coloured dots, which is my Viva Paper Pen - can see me collecting all of them, they're great!
I have noticed a bit of a flaw with the Kanban set, the birds don't fit in the cage - you'd have the RSPB onto you if you had two birds in a cage that size! - never mind, it's artistic!
The hearts and sentiment on the base were from another Kanban set called 'Wooly Bears - Isobel', anyway, thanks for stopping by & hope you like.
