Happy World Card Making Day!

Today is World Card Making Day, and I was able to carve out a little time to play with my brand new CTMH/Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge and stamps.  As soon as I saw the bird cage card/cuts, I knew what would be my first card!
This card was so very easy to make!  I began by cutting out the bird cage card with the Glacier wood-grain B&T from the Seaside paper pack.  I loved the polka dots on the inside, so I used another sheet to cut the piece with the bird cutout.  I also knew that I wanted to fill the bird cutout with a bird, and I remembered the current Color My Heart Color Dare #113: Glacier, Canary, and Cranberry.  Why not?  Canary's a great color for a bird, and I love aqua and red together.
What do you think?  I like the color combo!  The metal flowers are from the Brushed assortment.  I also used a white and several gold  glitter gems, plus gold polka dot washi tape and red shimmer trim.  (All supplies from Close To My Heart.)

Now here's the inside of the card.  Since the polka dots were pretty busy, I added a Colonial White panel that I distressed with Canary ink.  The "just because" sentiment is from the Artfully Sent collection.
Finally, I want to link this bird cage card to the Fatabulous Cricut Challenge #230, Shape Up: use any shape but a rectangle or square.  Happy World Card Making Day!
