Birdcage Thank You Card

I had so much fun making this birdcage card using pastel colours and dry embossed the inside with more birdcages. I’m really enjoying the Copics to colour in with,and  it’s just so relaxing colouring in. I made this card using pastel colours which is something that I don’t do very often but I really liked it, it’s funny how your taste changes and as you experiment with different styles and colours your cards change with time. The thing I really enjoyed adding to my card were my new small paper lace corners but almost impossible to glue down,any tips?…greatly appreciated!!!  Annie the Musical Red Carpet Night April 12th 2012 078 

Inside I embossed birdcages to carry through my theme.
