Cute Daisy May DT

It's the start on another week, (how did the weekend go so fast?) and there's a new challenge for you over at Cute Daisy May. This week the theme is "Bright and Cheerful" and I think it's just what we need to brighten our day with all the dreadful weather we are having!

I have used 2 of the images from sheet 186. I coloured the bird with Polychromos Pencils and Sansodor and a little glitter for it's perch and done the whole cage in gold glitter with the
exception of the bows which were coloured with my pencils.
Although I love all the Cute Daisy May girls, it makes a nice change to use something different now and again and I thought this cage was so pretty :) I just cut the little birdie out and stuck him on top of the cage.

I'm not sure who makes the main paper I used but it is double sided and the bits I used for the matting is the other side of the sheet.
The middle strip is from a K&Co mat stack and the piece the image is on is another K&Co paper.
Flowers are Prima and some orange ones I found in my stash, ribbon is some that Barry bought me and it's glittery:) How well does he know me?? lol, and the gold metal spray thing is from a local florist warehouse. I just unwraped some of the wire which was twisted around each other and made some little swirls.
I really like these sprays because I haven't seen anyone else using them (I like to be different lol) and they are so easy to twist and shape and of course because they are pretty :) They are actually much nicer in real life than they look in the pic and the beads realy sparkle :)

Well that my offering for this week. I hope you will join in and go look out all those bright papers that you have had forever and if you are scared of colour like I am!, you have probably been too scared to use lol.

If you are here for the Fred She Said blog hop which start today! please see post below.
