Christmas Decoration and card

Hi everybody, had fun making this little bird cage decoration with the Tim Holtz movers and shapers bird and a cage die cut.. I cut the cage out in craft card stock and then inked it up with walnut stain.  The mini tags is a punch from Stampin'up and the Merry Christmas was from the stampin'up set Teeny tiny sentiments. Papers where from Kaisercraft Dear Santa 6x6 paper pack. The card is 4 inch x 12 inch and scored at 4 and 8 inch very easy card to make.. Then I just cut the front 2 panels from corner to corner.. Wanted to have something to be able to slide the little birdcage in.. I just popped a brad on the back and slid the birdcage over the top of it to hold it there.. 

So here is my card...

I would like to welcome a new follower to my little blog of cards Miss Cindy.  Hope you pop in every now and then and say hi..
