Simply Sweet

Good afternoon all and hope you're having a good day. As it's been raining I decided to do some crafting and finally managed to decide what to do for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge after several days thinking about it.
Here is the inspiration from Sarah Anderson:
This is not a combination that I would normally have thought of and in the end I went for simple as I've used Distress inks and I think the colours speak for themselves.
The birdcage, bird and flowers are from a set by Kanban (9016) and the text from the Papermania Chatsworth Furnishings stamp set. They are all stamped with chocolate brown dye ink on a piece of Basic Grey paper.
I then sponged on Distress inks in Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Tumbled Glass. The panel was added to a square cream card with part of the front embossed with the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls folder.
As you see, it really is simple to make.
