Just for you flowers and caged Easel card

Woohoo back with another card.
Thank you for the comments on my other cards :)
I have used my Tim Holtz birdcage die again.
I am actually falling more in love with this one each time I use it.
Have you noticed it's another blue and white combo ?
I love it. Always reminds me of Winter snowfalls.
I hate the cold but love the season LOL
The paper pack I have used is 'Pocket full of posies' and I love the papers with the texture and glitter in them.
Sentiment is a stamp from Helz Cuppleditch's Just for you Panda
Ribbon die is by Marianne Designs and I have threaded it with blue ribbon and added hand tied bows and added some gems.
I have also used one of her floral dies. The leaves are in the cage.
The flower petals I have edged with red ink to match the red in the papers, stack them and added a red heart gem to each. Due to the lack of sun I wasn't able to pick up the glitter with the camera but there is some honest LOL

Also if anyone has any hints and tips for applying to DT's do please let me know as I would love to be able to get on one.
Thank you and thank you for looking :)
