It's All About The Birds

Good morning everyone.
April the first - April Fools' Day - Any good pranks pulled yet? I must be getting old because I haven't pranked anyone this year.
Today I have a "little" keepsake featuring my newest granddaughter. She is just SOOOOOO cute!! My usual style had to go on hold for this!
It also fits in very nicely as my DT piece for the new challenge over at Things To Alter.

This month the theme is Anything Goes with a Twist - Birds

I have used a number of different elements from the shop
The love birds come in a variety of sizes
sun/cloud from the Weather pack
plus some other bits from stash

All the pieces were painted with Decoart paints. The main bird cage and heart frame have a crackle finish using Decoart weathered wood. The cloud had some texture added using Decoart Gesso
That little lace butterfly has been sitting in my stash for years waiting for the right moment to fly free. Some hand made lace flowers with a few pearls added and a piece of ribbon to hang it up.

All done
Thanks for looking. I hope you like looking at this as much as I enjoyed making it for my daughter.
