Spirit of Spring/TMTA Textures



While walking in our garden, I found this small piece of birch bark hanging off the tree, so I gently peeled it off, and decided to make an ATC with it. I stamped the border with The Stampsmith stamp. The main image - the Romanov family in the early spring, digging in the snow, is also from The Stampsmith plate (From Russia with love).
