FLOWERSONG

This week, on her blog Robin's Nest, Robin has generously given us three lovely vintage ephemera freebies, including the music sheet that provides the background for this image. When I began, I was thinking of Gaby Bee's beautiful bird ATCs at Colorful Adventures. As I'm going to reproduce this ATC on magnet material, which I've never tried before, I thought I'd keep it simple.

I love the lace silhouette along the bottom .... and I notice the button eyes .... is that for Coraline?

Fantastic - the color and the images are striking. Great idea to use a button for the birds eye :-) Just fabulous!

Really beautiful. The oranges and reds go so wonderfully with the stark black bird. Great entry.

BTW, I noticed that you are from the Cotswolds. I am assuming that that is where that wonderful, wonderful cheese of the same name is from.

This is absolutely gorgeous. The colors transport me to a lovely place where I can hear the song of a bird serenading the dying sun.
