For one, I used a picture of an owl from an old calendar. I struggled with the background for quite a while, but in the end I used a combination of wooden background paper and a flower punch atop of it, which reminds me of a fence covered with snow. Three more pearls in the right lower corner, and - finito.
The second card has a stitched ornament with pearls, which fits nicely to the alpine scenery in the background. This picture, too, is taken from an old calendar.
The first card goes for the following challenges:
- open-mindedcraftingfun: fowls/birds
- robynsfetishchallengeblog: things with wings
