MMM .. Spring.. New Life/New Beginnings

Hi every one, sorry I'm a bit late with my post but I hope you've all had as lovely a day as I have. Its my birthday and I've been out for the day in Chester with five of my girl friends and I forgot to schedule this post ... oops :o(.
This week at Make My Monday we would like to see your New Beginnings/ New Life cards . I chose new life as in.. spring time birds building their nests and looking after the eggs ready for the "new life" to emerge.
Stamps: Main Image: Stampendous
Spring is Coming: Chocolate Baroque
Sentiment: Kanban
Tim Holts Distressed Doily
Roses: Marianne Creatables
EP: ... not sure who's.. lol
 I stamped  the Spring is Coming sentiment onto the  brown paper (it is brown wrapping paper), and onto the cream card  with Versamagic. The edges of of the brown paper have been embossed with the blue EP as has the doily which I also coloured with water colours.

 I have had great day with my wonderful friends... and probably drank too much red wine... lol

This is stunning Suzi! I love the birds but I also love the subtle 'Spring is Coming' background and the brighter green version. That's the best doily treatment I've seen too! Vicky x

Oops - meant to add Happy Birthday for the beginning of the week and surely it's obligatory to drink too much red wine on your birthday! Love the new profile photo - very glam! Vicky x

Happy birthday!!!! And secondly, there is no such thing as too much red wine! lol
There is something so beautiful about the light blue and brown combo with colours, and fits perfectly with Spring. A really gorgeous card.
