Flowers & Birds

Some people say spring, and mean bright pastel-like colors.
Others say spring and mean bloom, flowers, birds, butterflies.
To me it's all of those things. It's a time where there's lots of light, early in the morning till late at night; where the weather is mostly fine (except for a heat-wave now and again), where all flowers poke their littke heads out of the ground and feeling the warmth of the sun start growing to beautiful bloom; where you can hear all sorts of birds chirping even in the city; where trees start getting color again. It's as if the world is waking up from it's winter sleep.

When I make flowery cards, I especially love to create those twilight scenes, where all the flowers are in shadows against the colors of the sunset.

These are the challenges I entered this card into:

AiFactory - Flowers in bloom
Case Study - Inspiration card - flowers and birds
CRAFT - Flowers
Cute Card - No Text
Digi Doodles - Glitter & Glitz
Frosted Designs - Birds or butterflies
Polka Doodle - 3 patterned paper
