For the background I once again used one of my favourite techniques 'direct to paper' using Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I wanted to create an impression of windows and I think it worked !
I then used Marianne's dies to cut out the bird on branch and the little birdhouse using SU! Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I created the sentiment on my computer and matted that over a scrap of CC card before attaching it using PinFlair glue to raise it a little off the base card.
I hope our friends like their card and I think I'm safe to publish it today as I don't think they have internet access sorted yet, so won't see it on my blog before they receive it.
Short posting today, I'm busy getting organised ready for my trip to my Dad's tomorrow.
