Happy Monday dear friends...

It's fun to start the week with nice weather and a new creation when you are proud of it... It's my case today.
This artwork started with a sketch design was done to ensure it would respond to 2 challenges.  It's so challenging for me to participate in those ... it really gets me to think out of the box...LOL!

Ok, enough of musing...

There are several picture due to all the details in this card!


Paper: Authentique, navy Basil and strips of hand made paper.
Inks:  Ranger Distress Faded jeans, Antique Linen.
Fabric for under the nest
Stamps: Script: Hero Arts, Birds: Inkadinkado
Nest: Prima Flowers, Feathers, button, pearls, crystal sticker & letters.

If you look carefully you will see that Mama bird is still in the process of garnishing her nest since she has straw in her beak!

I hope you enjoyed your visit and that it will be a great creative week for you. 
I always love to read your nice and constructive comments !
