Love Birds

Hi Crafters,

What a dreary day it is here so this card should cheer you up!
The pretty flowers are a new (to me) Sue Wilson die that I purchased and the sweet birds belong to a Spellbinders die which I have cut apart and placed in a die cut cage from Cherry Lynn.

I have used this very pretty vellum sheet today secured behind the corner punches for my background. The dotty cardstock is from Anna Marie Designs which has been languishing in my craft room for far too long, thought it was about time I cut into it.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Fab n Funky - #336 Birds
Crafting When We Can - #137 Flowers
Crafty Creations - #334 ATG
Fussy & Fancy - #180 Fussy & Fancy


Thanks for your kinds words and for visiting here today.

See you soon,

Your new flower die is so delicate! This is such a beautiful card. The background paper is lovely and the new dies look wonderful with it.

You've got me going now as I have some of this pretty vellum design paper in various colours and for the life of me can't think which box draw or cupboard it is in!!! Oh well the craft room needs a sort out and as the 2nd phase of the bathroom refurbishment is under way today I'm holed up in there so no excuses. Love the branch with the hanging bird cage. Really looks as if it is part of a flowering tree. hugs Mrs A.
