The one about the little bird

The book swap with Lilia has turned into a three-way swap that now includes Kari!
I made this last night for said book swap. The baby is like the little baby bringing in spring, since it is getting warmer outside. I decided to stop fighting the urge to always use children in my work and just go with it. Little kids are cute and its fun to do. The baby's wings are pressed flower petals. I wanted to add some little cursive-doodling writing that says, "what a little bird told me" but I chickened out. I usually don't like it when I add my own doodles.
I am not sure if this one is finished. Some things bug me.
