...Flock together

I've really been having fun with my Bluebird stamp, and it's actually made me really long for Spring. Especially today, which is gray with the threat promise of snow.
I went to nature for color inspiration, and decided to color the three birds as English, American, and Australasian robins. I love to think how these birds are "common" to their communities, yet are so different in their coloring. The differences in beak and leg colors were especially interesting to me.


This is a foldover layer card, which I've seen several places including the awesome Extreme Cards & Papercrafting blog. It's oh-so-easy to cut and lays relatively flat. I was inspired to try something different by this week's
Fancy Fold challenge at Allsorts. In this case, I'd say that birds of a feather fold together (you didn't think I could let that go, did you?)!
