The snowdrops are out big-time here in the UK, and it's wonderful to see! They especially seem to thrive in shady wooded areas like the place near my home where I took the photo for this card. I spotted these beauties through a hedge, perfectly framed by the branches of holly bushes which border their woodland home.
I selected an oval cut-out for this photograph and feathered the edges to produce the shadow effect that you see on this card. Then I added some simple pale green and white quilling in honour of the snowdrops, before sending it to a friend who celebrates her 70th birthday this weekend.
Pushing up through ivy and a carpet of last year's leaves, these snowdrops are full of the promise of Spring!
