Bird in Cage

Good Morning Everyone,
Hope to find you all rested from the weekend and ready
for a new week.In my header picture is a card that I made
about a week ago.  I was playing around with a technique
that uses gesso and mesh from fruit bags. You really can't
see it in the pictures, but what is done is that I layed the
mesh on the white cardstock and dabbed gesso on it. It will
then need to sit and dry. Once it is dry distress inks are
then used to give it a dimensional effect. I like how the
background came out to bad you really can't see it in the
The bird cage and the vines are cricut cutouts and the corners
were done with a corner punch.
Ok on to my dilma.
The picture below is of a card that I posted the other day. The
reason I am posting it again is that when I first started playing
with digi's when I would save them I made the mistake of not
jotting down who had created it. Since then I have learned that
when saving digi's to make sure to title the digi with the creators
name. So many of you have commented on the digi and I just
have no idea who created her. If any of you know who it is
please let me know so that I can give credit where credit is due.
If any of you could help me out I would be greatly appreciative.
HIMCR has it's color challenge going on until friday.
NMWC has their monthly challenge going until the
end of the month. We would love for you to join us.
Until my next post Have a Splendid Day!!!!!!!

I don't know if anyone else has already told you but the digi you're asking about is from Crafty Sentiments Designs. I got it as a freebie but it's now on their website here -
