Sweet pastel birdcage

Hello Creative Peeps

Just stopping by to share a project i made the other day, The inspiration came from this weeks challenge over at MDUC which is to recycle something i used an old cardboard box.

I took the top layer off to reveal the corrugated card underneath, cut it into a birdcage shape and painted it with off white paint.
 I've gone for a pastel yellow and cream theme with the decorations.

The Magnolia cutie is called Princess pea Tilda from the Once upon a time collection 2013, She has been coloured with promarkers & prisma pencils.
The swing is made from a piece of die cut frame and ball chain.
The paper behind Tilda is Kaisercraft vintage timeless.

The large yellow & gold lace flowers are cut from Doohicky flower die and Sizzix hello kitty daisies die
The bunting is cut from a Die-namics die, and held together with jump rings.

Can you see my little felt ladybugs? I just{heart}them cut from Elizabeth craft designs die with cream felt.
