Today's card is for Pals Paper Arts 157 and Create with Connie and Mary 248. I don't think I've participated with either challenge for quite a bit, especially Pals.
I flipped the sketch on it's side because I wanted to use one of my newer stamp sets, Take Care. I've been looking at it in the catalog for a while now and decided to finally get it. I stamped and cut out the little bird from Everything Eleanor and set it on the branch. I added a couple of punched flowers to the branch to bring in the Summer Starfruit color. The background is a piece of Summer Starfruit DSP that I ran through my Honeycomb EF. I added a strip of Gumball Green after I had stamped it with the nest image in Gumball Green ink. I added some Gumball ribbon and then layered a bow over some Linen Thread and another punched flower. A few pearls to dot the center of the flowers and the birds eye and this card was done!
