CTD#223 - Just Wanted to Say...

 Happy New Year!  I hope all of you enjoyed the holidays.  Today the Color Throwdown team is back and we're ready to start off the new year with a fun new challenge.  Joan is our hostess who has chosen this beautiful bird cage image as our inspiration photo alone with some wonderful colors.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Love Birds for my image and Heart-2-Heart #4 for my sentiment.  I created a designer paper look for my background by stamping the two different sized bird cages from the set onto crumb cake cardstock.  Then added my die cut and stamped focal image, the cage with birds using foam tape and my sentiment strip with three green buttons.
