Pollycraft Challenge - Flowers and Ribbons

The challenge this fortnight at Pollycraft has been set by the very talented Ria, and she has chosen Flowers and Ribbons.
So here is the card I created this morning...

I had an idea this morning of using the flowers to decorate the tree, so as soon as I dropped Dylan off at nursery I dived right into designing the card (I'll start the housework later!!)
I stamped the tree and birds from the Woodland Elves collection onto watercolour paper and first did a wash with watercolours, then highlighted with pencils and wax crayons.
I love how pretty the tree looks and it has given me a chance to use up some of the teeny tiny Prima flowers which I've had for ages!
Thanks for looking as always.
Love Becky xx
