Caged bird card


So these greatest TIM Holtz dies are finally mine for full price (4 of them- but it will be more... ) and this is a good time to try some. The caged bird was the first and I just adjusted it to some of this weeks challenges.
The products:
Kraft cardstock (recicled from these back of some note pack), K &Co pp, Webster pages ribbon, some lace and trim, some recicled buttons, recicled gold chain ( from outfit tag), self made beaded charms and one eagle charm from craft store
The techniqies: Crackle paint from Ranger, gold acrylic paint, distressing, inking, self made charms
And as for challenges:
Colors for Curtain call- I won random prize here- wow and thanks!!
Use -my jewelry items that I didn't use for 2 years- for Crafty cardmakers
Buttons and blings for Delightful sketches
Distressing for Totally paper crafts
