Cherished Friend, nice and shabby

Whilst  do like CAS cards, I'm much happier in my more is more shabby zone, so after not touching my pretties for quite a while I had a play today with pretty papers, foamiran, lace, chipboards, and came up with this DL card.  I don't make many in this shape and honestly, I have no idea why not because I love them!  

The paper is fairly old, Crafts and You (I think).  I made some foamiran flowers using the Peony Flower Die and pale pink foamiran for the base instead of white and just adding a touch of deeper pink ink to the edges of the petals before heating, twisting and stretching.  The tiny white foamiran flowers are also foam, I just heated them a LOT longer till they couldn't shrink any more.  I was surprised just how dinky these turned out!

I heat embossed the chipboard bird cage with silver embossing powder then dulled it down with a bit of watered down gouache.  I finished off with a digital sentiment from the Everyday Banner Sentiments (digi)
