Yesterday was my youngest sisterSue's birthday, and my sister Patty's birthday is on Valentine's Day. Normally both of their cards are kind of Valentiney so went a different route this year. Hope they like them. I used a gold metallic cardstock to die-cut the cages and then smeared it direct to paper with Ranger's embossing Ink. I then used a pinch here and a pinch there of Distress embossing powders in tea dye and walnut stain to make it look rusty.
