Anything Goes with Divas

Good morning, time for everyone's favourite challenge over at Divas by Design, 'Anything Goes' and this week we are sponsored by
and as it's the 10th I can share my card with you as I made it for my mums birthday which was yesterday (hope it arrived in time!).  Now I was really struggling for how I was going to out do the last card I sent her and I was struggling so much I finally decided to take it back a notch and make a C&S card that I hope is elegant too.  So I started with the lovely bird cage die cut which was sent to me by a friend, then I needed to find a bird to fit it and after lots of cutting and resizing I settled upon this one cut with the Cricut.  Cut it in several colours too as I couldn't decide which one I liked best and also hadn't decided what background I was going to used.  So while I was busy pushing bits of paper around my desk the cage ended up on a white card blank and I really liked the effect then the bird came next, after that the embossed lines, Cricut cut Mum and pearls just fell into place and I love how it turned out, hope Mum does too. 

I even decorated the inside using a quote I have seen recently while blog hopping, printed on the pc in a colour to match the bird, more embossed lines and final edging using a spectrum pen.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss #252 ~ Bling
OSAAT #219 ~ Anything Goes with a die
