Card with blue bird and wreath

Here is my card for our February challenge over at the Country View Challenges. The theme was chosen by the lovely Miriam and it's called The first sign of Spring.

For this challenge, I have made a card with a bird and a wreath. 

For this card, the background was already ready, because I made it earlier for a house ornament. This was the roof of my polka dot house and you can find the tutorial here.

The bird is part of the Sizzix Thinlits die, Feathered Friends. I coloured my bird with Distress inks and Oxide inks. 

The wreath is part of the Sizzix Thinlits die, Funky Wreath set. I coloured them with Distress inks.

The tiny flowers on the wreath are part of the Sizzix Thinlits die, Small Tattered Florals. In the middle of the flower I put a drop from Nuvo Drops (Banana Split).

You can find the text in the Stampers Anonymous, Tiny Text (CMS394).

If you have a Spring project, please don't hesitate to join our November challenge where a randomly selected winner can have a £20 voucher to spend in the Country View Crafts online shop.
