Bloomin' Happy Easter

Hi Crafters... 

Ive been having a play with my bird punch again... i started off making little chicks, then i started making flowers.... take a look

Todays card fits in rather well with two challenges one over at Less is More... link below and the other at Casology link below

Ive used 3 of the birds wings to make a tulip... and then the birds branch stem to make the stem for the tulip...

heres a closer look

Ive punched a 2 1/2" circle paper pierced the edges and added my flowers on to it, Ive tied the bunch of tulips with a piece of white bakers twine...

See the sentiment... Ive used the Happy Easter stamp from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and the Bloomin' from the Sale-a-Bration set Bloomin' Marvelous - get it flowers bloom - bloomin Easter ... 

What ive used
Stamp sets - Bloomin' Marvelous, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink - Wisteria Wonder
Punches - 2 1/2" Circle, Bird punch
Card Stock - So Saffron, White and Wisteria Wonder
Whisper White Bakers Twine
