Waltzingmouse Challenge #116

Hello fellow bloggers!

Time for another card for the Waltzingmouse sketch challenge:

I decided to do a bit more embossing against the vellum again, this time with the Musical Backgrounds set. I've also used the birdcages and sentiment from Asian Gardens, together with the Frame It set. Instead of putting the sentiment in the usual space I've 'hung' the birdcage there by stitching it to the frame. For those not familiar with this stamp set, my explanation's probably as clear as mud!!

Happy stamping everyone and thanks for stopping by again,
