All The 3's

Three's always work well in cards , so I used 3 Marianne design  die cut trees in pots and 3 bird on a branch , cutting the bird off the branch to perch on the tree instead , I think it looks a bit funny,with the over sized birds, but none the less pleasing design. My patterned  paper is desert blooms by first edition and the plain. card is core essentials . I've sanded every thing for a shabby chic look then added 3 gems to make bird eyes  The sentiment is tattered lace , the one with lots of great sentiments , I managed to buy one from ebay , a must have for any crafter!
My card is a large square 8x8 .

challenges entered :
the paper players : three spree (feature things in 3's)
allsorts : no flowers
alphabet challenge : D for die cuts

To end with a picture of Hudson  AKA Mr Bunny , he has just been bathed and clipped by me , he is 13 and has very few teeth but I still think he's a real cutie . He loves his big fluffy basket and doesn't like to share with my other poodle Alfie.
Have a nice evening. janex
