Marty's Sunday Sketch Challenge

Yes, I do have a calendar, and no, I don't think it is Sunday.  Sorry for the delay.  Here is the sketch Marty sent:

I really like bird images and have lots of them.  For this sketch I decided to use a bird from a Tim Holtz collection.  Then I saw the cage....had to put them together:

The bird in the cage looked so sad to me that I felt I just had to put a humorous twist on the card....hence the sentiment.
The birds on a wire that I used instead of a ribbon is from I Brake For Stamps.  The sparkle on them comes from Platinum Stickles, my new favorite.
Check out Heidi's blog to see what the rest of the DT did with the sketch.
