Spring is around the corner, although you'd never know it with this freezing cold weather! Nevertheless, I decided to go with this theme. I used 3 different quilling techniques on this card: fringing for the little flowers on the branches; spirals for the birds' nest, and grape rolls for the eggs (however you can't really see the quilling here because of the glitter used). The tree branch was designed free-hand and cut out. For the birds, I heat embossed, glittered, and cut them out. I wasn't sure where to place the sentiment, and finally thought it would be a fun idea to have the birds offer it in the form of thought clouds, which, I just realized, is another fun interpretation of the dessert theme!
