Free as the bird

This week we are giving Spring a warm welcome, and what greater way to celebrate the gorgeous bird singing that makes us all notice the change of season?!!!

I have dug deeeeeep into my LLC box (and believe me, that box is filled with yummyness) to find a image to match this week's theme: Birds! 
At the bottom I found an old Riddersholm Design Image and it was just perfect for my card:

"Free as the bird" with papers from Pion Design's "Flower Frame" collection. I have tested to scrap with a few more layers than I normally do, using Kraft behind the colored papers. I think the tone on the paperbag and the birdcage was a perfect match to my "earthy" card.
I found this bird's nest charm in my box too! Gave it a brush of gesso, along with the flowers and the rest of my card. The birdcage is from Maya Road, and I used distress ink on it before I applied some gesso to it.

Hope you all are getting a hint of Spring these days, and if not... it's just around the corner, I'm sure ;)
