This was my ornament that I made for tomorrow but I was too happy with it to wait until then. This looks really pretty in real life with all of the Dazzling Diamonds sparkle and it really does look like a birdcage. It was a bit hard to photograph it to do it justice.
I was making a lantern ornament with the strips the other day when this idea came to me. I used Brushed Silver cardstock cut in strips 5 1/2" x slightly narrower than 1/2" wide. The ends were secured with rhinestone brads. The bird is from the Sizzlits Birds & Blooms set hanging from silver cording. I stamped the flourish and flower from Patterned Pines in Bashful Blue and sponged edges. For the embellishment on the bottom to hide the brad prongs I used the Sizzix die cut Swirls Scribbles and covered it completely in Dazzling Diamonds. Supplies are by Stampin' Up.
