Gingersnap Creations - Soft Yellows and White

Hi all, hope your having a fantastic weekend.  It's Sunday again, and as you know every week I have been playing the challenge over at Gingersnap Creations, which this week is soft yellows and white.  Now I did think of doing a card, but decided to carry on with my journey of the unknown and create something that isn't a card which I like to do with this challenge, so this week I have created a bird cage on a pedestal.  To start with I got all my yellows together to see what I had got.  I used to ribbon holders large and small and took off the tops and bottoms.  I then got a selection of yellow papers together and even some yellow postage stamps, I then stamped birds and swirls in a light yellow and ripped all the papers and then decoupaged them on the base with modpodge.  I think you can see how I did the rest, oh I did emboss the flowers with enchanted gold to give it a yellow sparkle look :-).  Can you believe I have been a Gingergem for 2 weeks and then last week I was the homepage artist, I'm so honoured, I even showed my mum on my phone lol.  I have won a prize so I need to email, but I am going to ask them to pass it to someone else as I don't think with postage costs that they send to the UK and to be honest just being the homepage artist was priceless (as they say lol).  Ok ok I guess your saying shut up and show us the pic so here goes ...............
I'm so happy how it turned out, the wire is a bit bent, I could have done with stronger wire on the outside but I didn't have yellow or white lol.  Thank you so much Gingersnap for really inspiring me to create art (or almost art as some of mine are a bid dodgy lol).  Thanks for looking :-) Kezzy xxx
