Birds in the snow

Hello lovelies,

The theme this week at City Crafter is

Snow bird
Make a card or project and include a bird AND snow.

Sweet Ros chose this beautiful theme.
Thank you dear, I love birds!

1) is a card I made for my 6 year old. We love exchanging "mail" :)
The little "stars" are supposed to be snow.
It's fabric and embroidery on watercolour paper
plus some lace, beads (on the lace) and some hand drawing.

2+3) is a matchbox I decorated, and together with...

4) which is a bird ornament, they were part of a swap I made for Diana.

Recycled and "junk" bits:

* matchbox
* old buttons
* leftover scraps of fabric
* leftover scraps of lace

Guest designer this week is the super talented Ana K.
I really love her vintage style!

Happy crafting!

xx Wen
