Less is more:Spring

Like a fool I decide to set myself a challenge within a challenge for this weeks test.  I did not want to use anything botanical to symbolise spring.  Yeah right! I got out the box of stamps, browsed through them for ages, got nicely surprised at how many I have and have not used and just was not inspired.  Feeling very frustrated I discovered some little Polka Doodles freebies on one of this weeks magazines and guess what?  I've used a TREE.  How very botanical!
I wanted something a bit cutesie though and wanted to focus on something else springlike other than the advent of spring flowers.  So this little bird is in his tree at the end of a long winter, ready to build his nest.  This is what spring signifies to me especially when the birds return to the gardens and start nesting.
I didn't want a detailed sentiment so added congratulations so the card will be suitable for some sort of good news, baby etc. It's on an embossed card from Papermania and mounted onto a nestie and glittered around the edge.
It's Saturday night, time for a nice chilled Prosecco.
