A Bird Tree

I printed this 1870's children's school book image on my card from The Graphics Fairy blog. If you have never visited Karen's blog, please do yourself a favor and check it out.

The 2 week challenge at the Play Date Cafe is the use the colors maroon, copper and tumeric on your card (or craft). I have been waiting to use this wonderful bird tree and thought the colors for the challenge gave this pretty tree just the life it needed.
I weathered the edges and scuffed the image with antique linen distress ink, added some jute and brown twine and a pretty little flower button and done. TY for taking a peek :)
