Steps by Step Tutorial:

1- I detached the frame and  cleaned the glass

2- I stamped on the white frame that comes inside the frame. I used Clearsnap Decades Dye Pad Photogenic color black  and G45 script & Argyle stamp

3-I die cut the cage and the bird and I added black mat pearl gem to add dimension to the die cuts

4- I adhered everything in the middle of the background paper that I cut 5X7 to fit the inside of the photo frame 

5- To embellish the outside frame, I used the stickers that come in the paper kit and rose bouquet.
