Only a bird in a Krafty cage...

… not a gilded one!

I've made this card for The Library Challenge where the current book is "I know why the Caged Bird Sings". Not a book I've ever read, but being by Maya Angelou I'm guessing it isn't about birds or cages at all.  However I've just picked up the "caged bird" and "singing" elements of the title and worked with those.

The die cut birdcage is part of a wedding favour, I bought a pack from The Range and each one can be cut into 4 birdcages. I've added a sheet of music, also using kraft, in a Darice embossing folder. After embossing I lightly highlighted some of the music with deep red ink. All the other bits and pieces came from my snippets box.
