Birthday Robin

This commissioned card was done a little while ago and my brief was that the lady recipient likes fuschias and robins.  Luckily for me, my recently delivered issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine had some lovely My Mind's Eye freebies including this cute robin chipboard. I was a bit worried that it might look too Christmassy but I think it worked out alright.
