In fact all the birds are well rounded and Mr Squirrel is a very happy chappy too. They are costing us an arm and a leg to keep up with the nuts and sunflower seeds they they are scoffing by the bucket load!! It's nice though to see all the varieties that pop in to visit us.
I'm trying out two items that I haven't used before on this card. Kraft paper and a Die-cut topper.The kraft paper is a Twistwrap made by Foundations craft unlimited and has the look of tree bark which I rather like. The topper is from a sheet called Robbins/Gold by Craft Creations Ltd. You get 6 assorted sized images and 9 smaller ones which you could use to make tags with. The lace has been in my stash for ever and a day (over more than 3 decades!) and the flower trims probably as long. They were originally attached to a loop of green ribbon each but it clashed ever so slightly with the green ribbon threaded through the lace so it had to go. Like wise the centres had a bead attached which I removed and replaced with the red pearls and the holly backing paper came from a friend in America. The sentiment is from an old, old Christmas card just waiting for the right time so I reckon I have made a well and truly vintage card.
