Not just a bird!

Last night I had my card class again!! I keep saying this but we had such a good laugh! In fact my Robin commented that there was a lot of hilarity coming from the conservatory and did we actually get anything done!!! I said yes, we can multi-task!!!
OK so I wanted to make a card using the bird punch pictured below! This has been a great seller so far but I wanted to show you how it is not just limited to birds!!!
I have seen on some US blogs how they have used the wing (top piece in this picture) to make petals on flowers!!!
And also the branch pictured at the bottom as the stems!! And here is my take on a bunch of flowers!!!

My ladies loved this card although they found it a bit fiddly tying the flowers together

The colours we have used are Lavendar Lace, Barely Banana, Pretty in PInk and Mellow Moss! Added a sentiment from Trendy trees using the Word Window punch

Arty farty angle!
Hope you like this card, will be back tomorrow with another one for you!
