Little Claire Birdcage

This is another of the new Little Claire stamps,called Birdcage.
I have distressed using black Adirondack ink and a make-up brush. The edge punch is from MS. There is plenty of clear glitter,you cant see it here! This batch of designs was done on one of those really gloomy days with terrible light,and all my lightbulbs are energy savers-which we all know means dim dim dim! I googled light boxes/tents earlier today and its got to be a priority,im fed up of making nice cards and not being able to show them clearly.
