Just Because Card

I like how this card turned out, you know how sometimes it just works, this one is one of those for me. The paper is pinkpaislee love this stuff! The birdcage is cut at 4" and the flowers at 1.25 and1" all from Sophie. The flourish is cut from home accents at 1.5". The birdcage and flowers are popped up one flower double popped. The vine is partially glued down and the rest is bent to lift off the page. All edges are inked and the birdcage is inked on top with gold. I got the idea for this from a wall decor item made by Amy Mitchell on the cricut blog.
I am entering this over at Cardz TV for the anything goes challenge.
I am also entering this at CTO for the thinking of you challenge.
