A little birdie


Isn't it lovely to see the sun shining and all the little newborn baby birds being fed by their parents. Our back and front garden are full of this lovely sight and I could watch them all day.
When I saw this gorgeous bird and nest stamp I just had to buy it as it reminded me of the the birds in my garden. I coloured my image with  Promarkers in colours to match my paper and flower. It was a bit of an ordeal cutting around the delicate parts of the honeysuckle but I managed it with the help of "my magic scissors" as I call them. I added the image to the side of the embossed frame as I thought it looked better with a bit of a white background behind it. It just needed a "little something" to finish it off, so I punched a few butterflies out of blue card to compliment the blue I had already used on my card. There it is and I love the finished card.
I have entered it into the challenges listed below.
