Photo Inspiration

Hi folks, its time for another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps .
This is my DT card for your inspiration.

This week it is our 

As you can see this was quite a literal interpretation, but that doesn't have to be the case. You could go with the colours or just take a couple of elements and run with that, the choice is yours.
Luckily I had a birdcage stamp that was free on a recent mag purchase so that was my starting point.
I used the sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches for the layout, popping the right hand square up on multiple layers and cutting out the other two. The branch is a MB die with some white leaves cut from a scrapped MB wildflower corner diecut and some freehand ones. The purple birdies were cut freehand after stamping with the birdcage. The sentiment is from STAMPloration's Bloom Sketches.
