Spring? I hope so!

I have to keep telling myself that Spring is just around the corner, despite the cold and snow, so when I saw the latest challenge theme at Crafty Individuals my mojo came back and I made something springy.
It's only the second diorama I've ever made it's quite challenging working in 3D. Thank heavens for quick drying glue! I love the bluebird bringing in the clock, that's when Spring really starts for me, when we move the clocks forward!
I used the Crafty Individuals book Shades of Summer and CI-206, 326, 329,231 and 255....
.... and a little wire. (clicking on the photos brings them to full screen, and you will be able to see details much better!!)
I do hope you like it, thanks for looking.
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
