Golden Happy Birdie

Whipped this card up in a FLASH when I saw that I had only 2 hrs. and 34 min. left to enter a card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge...I just LOVE it when I'm able to make a great card in only a few minutes, I think that only happens when I try not to think so hard about making something fabulous, hehe!
this week we have to design a card using black and white as the base and adding a touch of one of the following three colors: pink, copper or gold
I don't have copper embossing powder so whipped out my gold and got right to work...first I cut my base and attached a scrap of designer paper I had used on another card. It seemed to shout at me from under the PILES on my desk cause it was...BLACK & WHITE! (YES, LOVE it when that happens!!) Then on to picking out my stamp set...it looked like everyone had already made good use of the Medallion and Eiffel Tower stamps, so what else could be gold but a BIRD CAGE!! :) I used the Happy Birthday saying from Well Scripted & the sweet little bird cage is from Chic Boutique. I looked around for other GOLD items to pull my card together and came up with gold card stock, a bit of BLING & some gold twine. Ta Daaaa...

(The photos aren't the best since I don't have any natural light to shoot in, being 9:40 at night, Ahem...hi ho hi ho, off to bed I go!!)
