Stampin' Up! Everyday Occasions for CASEing the Catty #88

Hello Sunday Blog Hoppers!!  Welcome to our Caseing the Catty Sunday blog hop where we Copy And Selectively Edit from the projects in our wonderful Stampin' Up! Catalogue.
And this week we are sharing with you our inspiration from the
Everyday Occasions Chapter - pages 66-91

And here is my inspiration for this week - page 89 and the cute little stamp set Badges and Banners with the coordinating Duet Banner and Best Badge punches - you have to love a stamp set and punch combo - it just makes crafting soooooo much easier!!! 

I love the little bird cage (I think it might be my favourite in the set!!) and so I've made my 'vintage' version of this card - it's totally identical to the catalogue project,
 only I've gone for a softer earthy look. (which is more my style too!!)

What do you think?  I've also gilded the cage with the gold wink of stella pen - fabulous!!!
And my card also features the DIVINE Serene Scenery DSP - for the central panel AND the central strip running down the middle of the card.  I also love the burlap ribbon bow too - I cut the ribbon in half lengthways to make a thinner ribbon, and then when it was tied into a bow it separated to make a multi bow - love it!!!  

When I came to complete my card, I couldn't decide between a crumb cake base, or the panel with very vanilla lightly sponged with crumb cake ink.  I've just received my new sponge brayers in my last Stampin' Up! order, and wanted to have a go with my new toys...... I think I need more practice, but it certainly worked just fine for this card!!

Which is your favourite?
