Cheery Lynn Birdcage for The Paper Players

Hi everyone!

Today Claire is hosting a bright and cheerful color challenge at The Paper Players:

I used all Cheery Lynn dies for my card. I started out with some neutral gray for the birdcage, the flower in turquoise, and the leaves in pear.

I played around with my alcohol inks using a red and orange for the bird. It looks more red then orange after it dried though!

The sentiment is from Poppystamps stamped in black called, "Grateful Heart."
