SIL birthday card

Continuing my 'use up old stash 2012' challenge, i remembered i had bought the Cancer research crafting pack last year, loving the images, but when sitting down to use then, being lost for ideas as i usually make 'cute' cards. so i filed them away, to think about. During the week i knew i wanted to make this card for my SIL, and i knew we had bought her a decorative birdcage, so i had a eureka moment and remembered this peel off. And actually off the peel off sheet, it doesn't look tacky, which was a worry. The pack also came with some papers, that matched some card i was struggling to use ( not keen on the colour, it isn't girly or pastel) so a little ribbon, silver card and some pearls later..... we have quite a stylish card (well i think so!!!)
