Birds, a Flower and a Magic Window


After a fraught few days, I have been blessed with the loan of a near new computer for as long as needs be!!  I have not figured out how to transfer my watermark to this one, but have organised a few things so at least I can be online, edit my photos and blog now. 

As this is the same fold as I have used before, I will simply link to the source

I used this gorgeous bird paper from the Amy tangerine pad, Sunshine and Good times (now retiring) for the background, and layered die cut flowers over the scalloped circle die cut from pink card, and the circle from a piece white card coloured with Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish, Pink Thistle

The inside was finished with some glitter washi tape (part of a RAK from Mia), which, along with the fun mechanism of this card,  was really appreciated by the young girl who received it.
