We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Happy Birthday Little Sis!

It's my little sister's birthday today, and as she loves wood - she is a wood turner - I thought I would do a card using wood laminate.  This is tricky stuff, as it splits quite easily, but the piece I chose looked like a landscape.  I didn't do anything to the laminate, as I wanted to show its natural beauty.  I also wanted the background to be the focal point, so used some simple diecuts all painted in the same soft colour, highlighted with gold foil.  It's an 8 x 8 card, and the birdhouse swings free.
