Now this is the first time I have made a card like this and I really don't know what to call it!!??? I just don't do cards like this. My eldest says its for a 'granny', hubby doesn't like it as there is way too much stuff 'going on', but my youngest loves it because of all the buttons and small flowers! And I am sitting on the fence at this present time as I really don't know if its me!

I drew the outline for the little bird the other night while I was sat reading blogs. There seems to be so many of the little birds popping up everywhere LOL that I thought I would create one without having to go out and but the stamps.

The paper is made by erm I don't know!! I did get it from LCS, but I never ask who the maker is. It is double sided, stripes on one side and the flowers on the other.

The sentiment is an Anna Griffin stamp that I have had for ages - I got it from QVC with a load of other Anna Griffin stuff.

The 'braid' I bought yesterday from local wool shop for 65p a metre (don't know if that's expensive as i have never bought it before!). The rik-rac is from Nowalinka (thank you)!. The buttons are from the market and the small flowers I think i got from Crafty Carrot - but I might be wrong! Oh yeah the legs are made with some gold embroidery thread.
