Text & Tulle - City Crafter Challenge

I had an idea in my head when I saw the Mojo Monday sketch but my card had it's own idea...I started with  the City Crafter Challenge of Text and Tulle... (Love the alliteration and the idea of tulle and text). That inspired the text background and putting the tulle on the card...

All of the card was made up of pre-cut pieces in my pending folders. (Sounds better than scraps.)

I stamped the lovely mail definition from Memory Box in the background in gray.  I added a layer of the Elemental Damask in Peach Bellini.  Then the birdcage was sponged with the peach color and stamped over with the damask in gray.  The butterfly followed the same stamping as the background.  The ribbon and flowers were leftover from other projects using these colors. The is a layer of tulle behind the ribbon. Hard to see in the picture but very pretty IRL.

Thanks for stopping by...
