Shabby Cage...


Hello,
Today I thought I would show this card which was made with Nina's set Elegant Post, but I've made a 'Shabby' card for a change!!
The truth is that I had this basic layout from a card class I took ages ago with a very clever card maker Lisa. The original card had chipboard figures 21 on the front panel, from memory.
I loved the basic Grey paper used and had enough left over to make another one. This was made and left in my box until I got this new set and thought it would be a great background for the birdcage.
I just used a scrap of navy card stamped the image in chalk white and ran the same white around the edges of the block before adding to the background with foam tape.
I was really pleased that this very elegant set can be 'grunged' up a bit!! In fact Nina has designed two sets of digi paper to go with the set one of which is a grunge look.
I'm working on a couple of things ready for a Blog Hop Nina will host towards the end of the month so if you like this set keep watching !!!

That's it today hope to see you tomorrow if you can make it.
Till then.......

Love the card- at first glance it almost looks like a blue print for the birdcage.
