Fairy Cage

Ok, I think we have got the cage into a working design. This one houses a captured fairy. (Mom makes the Fairies with Sculpey)
I think this one is the keeper.
Thanks for stopping by and looking.

Butterfly Cage attempt 2

I am not sure about this one.
I don't like the way the top turned out.
I used Wild Card with the diamond background for the panels this time. I like the open-ness (?) about the sides but still think the 1st one is better.

Butterfly cage

Sorry about the long time in between postings but my life can get a little crazy. I have had a chance to slow down since I have been ill the last two days and home from work. I can only take so much bed and T.V. so I ventured into my craftroom this afternoon. This is what I created. It is just a prototype and I plan on working up a cleaner more refined version this weekend.
Any suggestions on how to improve it would be great.
I used George and Design studio for this using squares and rectangles.
The large butterfly inside is from Art Nouveau and the smaller ones are from a MS punch
The door was an after thought and will need to be improved upon.
Hopefully the next one photographs better
It stands about 9" tall and is 6" square at the base

pic from inside the door little dark sorry

thanks for looking
