Bird and Branch BBTB2 Challenge

Happy Monday,hope you had a great weekend.
Today is my turn to host the challenge over at BBTB2.
With spring just around the corner and nature as inspiration I chose a bird and branch theme. I have a thing for trees,branches and fences...I know kinda strange...so felt a cricut cut branch had to be added to the cricut cut bird project!! Lol!
 
I made this card for my Mum whose birthday was yesterday.

 
Recipe
Art Philosophy - card at 4.5",Bird at 2",Branch at 2"
DP - Papermania Vintage Notes (Thanks Santa)
Vintage Stitched Label Die and Vintage Sentiments from My Creative Time
 
A bit of stitching and inking.
 
Crackle glaze to the leaves.
 
Lots of 3d foam and some ribbon,button and a pin.
 
I think it looks even prettier in person.
The DT have lots of fabulous inspiration so do check them out and come and join in the fun.
