magpie kisses

I went all colonial and country-like with this layout.This photo is of 2 magpies sitting on a gate near my daughter's house.Here I explained an old poem our family always says to count the kisses someone puts on a greeting card.On further research I discovered it is an old Irish poem used to count magpies.

I left the corrugated cardboard half uncovered to get the rustic look, then inked the background paper,the card,the fence and the bird.This will go to the site called Stuck?! sketches.
