Here is a little inspiration I prepared for you:
The wonderful image of the two bluetits on a branch is from an old postcard. They seem to have so much fun on the blooming apple tree!
I decided to create a matching outside with a stitched swirl that I decorated with white and pink flowers to resemble the apple blossoms. As the card looked a little boring, I added pearls and a silver sticker, and painted some foliage.
To cover up the stitching and gluing on the inside of the card, I used some embossed paper. I hope I managed to make an acceptable spring-card in the end ;)
Now, it's up to you - show us whatever reminds you of spring. You can upload up to 3 creations and there is no limit except that of using Fadengrafik on your project. Happy crafting!
By the way, did you know bluetits are actually scavengers? They especially like to peck at the eyes. Boy, do I have talent to kill anything remotely romantic or lovely! :)
