Pearls in my hair

Hello peeps and I hope this finds you well and enjoying some sunshine. I am delighted to report that the primroses are appearing in our hedgerows and the buds on the daffodils most definitely have a yellow tinge now. The rabbits are enjoying the delicacy that is our crocuses but hey ho, I can live with that!!

Anyway enough of the flora and fauna reporting and more of the reason I am actually here!! 

It was my Birthday last week and, along with some other lovely goodies, my kind and generous team buddy Annette sent me some lovely ribbons which were the starting point for my card. The papers were a perfect colour match and this is what evolved.



The lovely image was coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers and then die cut using my little used Spellbinders majestic labels. I added glossy accents and glamour dust to the little birds and obviously some liquid pearls to her hair. To make a change I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and actually like the result...far softer than black I think.

I am playing at these challenges

Belated Happy Birthday Sarah, sorry I missed it.

I was amazed to see the next farm along have loads of daffodils out already, like yours ours are still in bud.

A very pretty card and that's a lovely die frame.
