1st of March

1st of March approaches quickly and I had a last minute request for a 1st of March card.
What's 1st of March? Well... in our part of the world we celebrate the spring beginning with this date. The tradition is to give "martisoare" as gifts with this occasion.
"Martisor" is a tiny little ornament bound with a red and white piece of twine, it is mostly like a broach but cutter ;) . Mostly the women and the kids wear it from 1st of March till 8 of March as a sing that the spring comes. I find it a lovely tradition. It is also usual to give bouquets of snowdrops.
Unfortunately I don't have a good picture of a "martisor" but I promise you I will get back to you on 1st of March with some pictures of the ones I will receive.
Now here is the card that I did on request. I got inspired by the lovely frame that is this week's inspiration over at CASE Study Challenge Blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
