Caardvarks Inspiration Challenge

Caardvarks' new challenge is up.  Hooray. And the task is to create a card based on this gorgeous photo:
 Wow - how pretty!!!  I knew straight away that I wanted to play with a real twig.
So I had some fun with a few new release digikits from twopeas. The background paper is from the English Garden digikit by Stacy Marks. I love this kit.  For the side banners, I recolored one of the papers from THIS kit.  Gorgeous.  And the bird and sentiment are both from THIS sweet kit.  And the twig is from my new garden.  Thank you my beautiful silver birch tree! (So happy to have my own TREES... my "garden" at my last house was about 1 metre squared and concreted over.)
Here is my card:
Supplies: all from twopeas.
Hope you get a chance to enter - such a perfect Spring themed challenge. Click HERE for details.
Bye for now.

Great card for this beautiful piece of inspiration. The twig is perfect for the bird, and that bird really pops off the card against the soft, spring background. Thanks for sharing.
