Julia, I think I first saw this over at MMM, and instantly fell in love! I adore birds, and I love how you've finished yours! I'm giggling ever so slightly, because I just finished a DT project using a bird on a branch, but I love how your branch turned out so much better than mine! This is a gorgeous piece! I hope you are all hunkered down for your storm! We actually had snow yesterday here in sunny, hot Wilmington, NC! Hugs!

Julie, I love this. And I'm so grateful for your instructions over at A Vintage Journey. I'm trying to get better at layering stencils so your card is fabulous inspiration. Gorgeous colours and wonderful use of the bird die cut.
