Robins aren't just for Christmas...

Hi, today I'm sharing a card made for a friend to give to her mother-in-law. I have made robin cards for her before, but it can be really difficult to find non-Christmas robin pictures and I had exhausted my supply. Therefore, I was thrilled to find this gorgeous image, designed by Barbara Hiebert, as a download on Craftsuprint.

The image is so intricate that I kept the rest of the card simple. I embossed some pink Adorable Scorable card with a rose embossing folder (I actually ended up with a debossed image but that was okay!). I added a ribbon and some lace, before finishing off with some pearls.

Thank you for visiting today and for all of your lovely comments.

Such a pretty card Cathy. We love Robins and have a couple who visit the garden. One comes into the conservatory to be fed! They are so cute!
