OK it may not feel like it, I know a lot of the UK woke up to their first significant snow of the winter today, but the birds are definitely pairing up in the garden and there's serious blue tit activity around the nesting box, so spring really can't be that far away!
I was really taken with these sweet little bird and nest embellishments when I went to the Make It show last week, they are perfect for decorating a spring themed card.
The background is a daffodil-printed vellum from a very old issue of Making Cards, topped with a die cut doiley using card to match the birds. The die is an old unlabelled one but I'm fairly sure I bought it from The Range which means it's probably an X-cut one. Ready made doileys are all very well but sometimes it's nice to be able to have a customised one! Then scraps of hessian and ribbon were all that was needed to finish the card.
