Paper Whimsey Quote Challenge collage

This is a 5x5" paper and fabric collage created in response to a quote challenge on Paper Whimsy. Background is printed lutradur and pieces are either fused fabric or paper. Tree and the gate are stitched, leaves are fabric. We were required to use certain elements, a flower, a bird, a shoe and an ornamental element. And at least a little bit of the following poem.

by Hilda Conkling
Green velvet to look upon.
Shaped and woven of tiny trees
Soft velvet to make a pillow for the birds
Or flowers when they go to sleep,
Velvet rugs for the footsteps of the wind
(Though he leaves no footprints behind him.)
I too have felt that softness:
I have heard the wind pass and return
And stoop down to whisper
Among the trees of the moss-forest.
