Aviary Thanks

I just dusted off another wonderful stamp set from the current catalog - Aviary. I think those bird cages are simply irresistible! I found this card on SCS today and couldn't wait to case it, but I wanted to make it even easier than Grandma Overboard did, so I simply stamped the most ornate cage on the right side of a a piece of patterned paper that has a bit of a bolder pattern on the left side. This is probably the simplest card I've ever made! My birdcage stamp fell of its block mid-stamp so it didn't quite meet the stand, but I fixed that right up with a little bit of tangerine grosgrain ribbon. Don't ever think of a mistake as a mistake - simply an opportunity to embellish!
