Beauty is timeless

Hi guys, I'm back today with a creation just for fun,
this time next week I'm on hols for a week! yeah!! 
I love birdcages, don't think I've told you that before have I? anyway I do so I thought I'd use a Tim Holt die that I've had for ages and never got round to using!

I first cut it out on some card stock then used some gorgeous  MME papers from the lost and found ~ blush pad, from My Crafty Heart so love these! the butterfly is made using another one of the papers from the same pad and I went all over the cut out butterfly with a gelly roll pen in clear star, in Real Life it shines beautifully,
the gorgeous clock charm, so love these as well are from the vintage charms collection at My Crafty Heart too,
The beautiful seam binding came from The Pretty Little Ribbon shop and I must get some more as I use it quite a lot,
