As soon as I saw this photo, it reminded me of something I'd seen before, but I couldn't place where. I've been racking my brains for days, and then woke up at 4am this morning with the answer - it reminds me a lot of the beautiful goldfinch on a thistle image on Joanna Sheen's Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady CD-rom set. I just had to get up and get printing!
I've combined the image with some coordinating papers from the CD, a stamped sentiment using an Oak House Studio stamp, chosen in honour of today being "International send a friend a card day" (there's a day for everything, isn't there?) and lots of distressing.
