Card - Canary in a Bird Cage

I made 2 of these cards for my monthly card exchange because when I send my cards at the beginning at the month I made a mistake.

I created the background for the bird cage with the Watercolor Smooching technique.  Here's a link to the tutorial I found on line.  I used an acrylic plate, dye ink pads and light watercolor paper.

I cut the bird cage at 4" with the Cricut and the Straight from the Nest cartridge from blue card stock.  I cut the bird from yellow card stock to make it a canary.  It adhered over the blue one cut with the cage.  I took the swirl from the bottom edge of the cage to create a hanger.  I added a bit of a link between it and the cage with a marker.
