Stuck in the ....BIRDCAGE!

Here I go again- using the HA digit kit (birdcage). This time I shrinked the size of the image and got my under-used Swirly Frame out to play. I am entering this card for Lucy's Inspired By Challenge (see here). 
I'm constantly inspired by Hero Arts Hostess Jill Foster's creations (see here)
I know I don't ever come close to her AMAZING distressing skills, but I strive to be like her! Thank you, Jill, for your inspiration! While you are here, here's another one I made with a different color scheme.
Thank you for looking! Looks like Spring is in the air... the snow is starting to melt a little bit... Winter Blahs no more :)
