Muse 154 - Jenni Murray

Muse
Jenni has brought me happily back to my childhood ... OH my, I did love yellow: dresses, ribbons, buttons, & bows!


I was inspired, not only by the color of Jenni's card, but by the squares of her design.  I replaced the bloom with one of #Wplus9's darling Happy Birds, and changed the white space a bit!

Just in case you noticed his beady little eyes ... I splatted it - thus the addition of the enamel dots!!

Hope you like it, Jenni!

Yes, your Happy Bird DOES put a big smile on my face. Oh, how I want to order this set. Bizarre, given how I'm terrified of birds, but...these feathered friends seem mighty friendly!
