Baby & Birds Spring card (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi everyone,

I created another card today using a beautiful image from The Paper Shelter. I wasn't sure whether to give her a baby sentiment or not but decided to leave it blank in the end. My colouring in real life looks a bit better than my camera is letting on but it won't always show it, nasty camera hehe.
