MMM week 42

Hi everyone and here we are at the final MMM week on the  SPRING theme. I love these challenges with the same theme running through for a month but with a different twist each week. This week  the challenge is to create something involving
NEW LIFE OR BEGINNINGS
Now this could be a number of things: Easter (New Life in the church), New Baby (human or animal - think lambs, chicks or bunnies), A New Life Together or even a New Home. 
I was a bit stuck for inspiration for a while as I don't have any baby animals or religious images and my printer is playing up!! Anyway I eventually came up with this card for a new home which I hope you like:)



My base card is a pre patterned glossy card from my stash. I cut it down to 5" x 5" and folded a corner down, cut off the end and secured it with brads. I cut out a birdhouse shape, punched out flowers and the bird and branch from SU all in the piece of leftover card. I moulded the flowers and added a pearl to each centre and the sentiment is from my xyron digital runner. The little bird is from Everything Eleanor SU set.


Thanks for taking the time to visit:)

This is so pretty and very topical, we have had loads of birds trying out our bird-boxes just lately.
