Spring reminds me of swallows (and the other way around), and the Whatnot bird from Laced With Grace is so much like it. I chose a coordinating paper, Glitzer and another Whatnot (that I cut out the word "SMILE" from), out of the same collection. I played with textures a lot on this card, just how I like it - embossing, sewing and textiles complete the look. Isn't that a fun colour combo too??
