Hello Everyone...2 more sleeps and I'm off on holiday and just rang my hairdresser and getting my locks lopped off before I go..

Found this beautiful vintage Bird image from The Graphics Fairy   and couldn't wait to put a card together..

The papers were in my scrap box...just snip bits that were torn and put back together..

The last of my WOC blossoms...and the branches were from an artifical arrangement that I mutilated a long time ago..

A close up of the gorgeous bird and the little teal pearls dotted about.

The side view...added a butterfly and a rafia bow..some mesh from my scraps as well...and the sentiment stamp from Rosies Studio..a clear set.

Going to enter these challenges...

Crafty Calendar Challenge   [Things with wings]

All Sorts Challenge  [birds and Feathers]

Thanks so much for stopping by...back off to work for tea rounds so will see you tomorrow.

What a gorgeous vintage card, Chrissy, and it also somehow has an Oriental look with that wonderful cherry blossom. Just lovely!

Sorry to hear the photos weren't working for you today - seems to be fine on mine, so maybe it's just got something against New Zealand?!

Hope you have a brilliant holiday!
