#163 Fussy and Fancy Challenge ..... Birthdays

F&F Challenge #163 Birthdays, hosted by the very talented Sasha
This really was a card that started off as one thing and ended up totally differently.... I bought myself a craft magazine with an embossing folder as a freebie, when I tried it out I was quite pleased with it and before long I had made a plain cardblank which I put away in my stash.

Then I was thinking of ideas for a birthday card and I found the card blank again, I did some diecutting, inking and added a sentiment but I still didn't know where I was going. Then I remembered some pretty Apple Blossom bird stamps I had bought... and before long I had made a topper for the front of my card

Then all I had to do was make some paper flowers, I tried to make them look like the cherry blossom on the branch the bird is sitting on .....and here it is opened

That reminds me later this month our cherry tree will blossom it looks so pretty, bare branches heavy with beautiful delicate pink flowers and then you can guarantee the wind will come and blow them all off the tree and the lawn will be a carpet of beautiful pink flowers.
Must dash as I have a roast dinner to cook
