Little bird

A rather quick post this time, with a rather empty spring-inspired card. 
Trying to catch the deadline over at craft-alnica with their "hand cut" challenge, I remembered some Nina Štajner motifs which I've pre-cut quite some time ago. They were actually featured on the cover of a Nina Štajner paper collection, but it would be almost a sin to not use the cover as well, when it looks like this!
Among the different critters, I have chosen this little bird to work with. In order to not interfere with the chosen motif, I decided to use a very soft background paper, which I found in a romance/wedding package. I'm not sure whether this is going to be a wedding card after all, but the words are subtle enough to go with any occasion. 
As the card still looked a little empty, I placed a little flower-shaped button in one of the lower corners. For a little *extra*, I decorated it with a strip of raffia. I thought about adding pearls as well, but decided to stay on the CAS side of crafting this time ;)
And a rather empty central market in Ljubljana, a view I wanted to capture for ages and now managed to get due to *the circumstances*.
