Nic, this is stunning. I'm not looking at the Songbird - just like the postcard stamp - they are both gorgeous!!! Thanks for taking the time to enter the Delicious Doodles Challenge this week of “shaped card”. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw. Kym (Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog Design Team Member) PS Hope you are settling into your new job.

Lovely! Your bird is beautifully coloured and the snow on the branches and the berries is perfect but it's the shape of this card that I really like. I'd love to have a closer look. It's the vertical that is catching my eye. Can you explain how you've achieved this, Nic? Hugs, Lesley
