Gas Street Moorings, Birmingham

 Birmingham Arts Fest this week. Lots of music and dance, and all for free.  Can't be bad.

We managed the opera and ballet last night after a launch party for the Rootless Forest on the other side of town.

Today it was Polish dancers, classical music and more opera + bits and pieces of bands and groups.

Even the weather has been beautiful.  Though we'll probably suffer for that from now on.

David took lots of photos of the "forest" and one of them is of Beth watering her trees and on the phone at the same time.

So I took the opportunity to make her a thank you card for inviting us to her party. 

I cut the corners of the photo and matted it onto silver card and then green card, cutting the corners each time.  I then fixed it to a green card blank.

I cut out lots of leaves and branches using the Cuttlebug in two shades of green and stuck them all around the photo along with some birds, insects and a butterfly.

I added more leaves and ladybirds on the inside.
