is it safe to come out yet? (a springtime card)

It's been painfully cold here, and of course that's turned my fancy to hiding indoors and dreaming of spring.
Even though this pair (from Sin City Stamps) look more like bluebirds (which is what happens when one stamps bird images on blue paper), I actually had turtledoves in mind . . . not lovey doves, but springtime doves.
The background stamp (also Sin City Stamps) is over a shimmery watercolor wash of Niji Pearlescent Watercolors , paper pieced with hymnal pages from a Vintage Text collection and Glitz patterned paper , which happens to be on sale right now at Altered Pages.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
