I started by resizing the spring bird in Word, then i added my own sentiment, Happy Mother's Day. I picked out  fancy font from Word and moved the bird around until i liked the layout of the bird and sentiment. Then i printed it out and colored it up with Copic markers. I didn;t color the bird with any kind of bird in mind, if it matches a real bird out there it was not intentional!! hehehe!

I cut the bird out with a stitched rectangle. Next i wrapped some brown bakers twine around one side of the rectangle and tied it in a bow. Then i added a few glitter gems around the bird.

Next i found some pattern paper that matched the brown bakers twine, but i wanted it to be a little lighter so i went over the paper with a white pigment ink. This muted the paper nicely. I added the pattern paper to a white card base and last added the bird panel with foam tape!
