|the finished card ... makes me feel like spring :)|
day eighty nine and here in new zealand we are ienjoying our first days of spring for 2011 ... i wanted to do something with the feel of spring ... i pinned this gorgeous card by jen from JENerally speaking (such lovely crafty projects on her blog!) to my paper crafts board and it was exactly what i felt like creating today :)
|have paper, will create!|
i gathered some cardstock and some patterned paper and started with the easy things first ... the card size (6 x 6"), the tree and its trunk, then moved on to the more tricky parts! i used embroidery floss as i couldn't find a twine that looked nice and nesty :) the bird was drawn several times before one actually made it into the nest ... and that was the card done and dusted.
|the easy bits|
|the finished card complete with bird number ...|
yeah it was a few! maybe number 6 ;)
my sincere thanks to the talented jen, her cards and general crafty ideas are beautiful, if you have time i would definitely check her creations out :)
