Printed, coloured and cut out image. Die cut the rose leaves and oval topper, I made up the flowers using various styles, finishing off with brads. The wooden birdcage, I gilded with Indigo Blu mega flakes.  I used an 8 x 8 scalloped card as my base, adding blue and pink backing card with ribbon. I placed the oval topper to the side and added the image. I finished off by adding the flowers and all the other mentioned embellishments and there you go, my take on our theme of 'Elegance'!!
