Welcome back to Inspiration Wednesday and today I have another gorgeous card using the Iris Garden Accents to create a bucket full of irises and birdies from Heartfelt Creations. I enjoyed painting these beautiful images and putting them all together on this card. It looks like someone has just picked a whole lot of flowers and foliage and put them in the bucket next to a fence. Aren’t those little birdies so cute!!
