From Our Nest ...


Happy Saturday! I'm just dropping by to show you a card I created for my brother and sister-in-law for the first day of spring.
 
After cutting a Framelits Labels die from Shimmery White paper the nest was stamped in StazOn Timber Brown and colored with Stampin' Up markers. The cute eggs were done in VersaMagic Sea Breeze with a blender pen.  The image was then layered onto a piece of True Thyme.  The background paper is from Prima Marketing called "Annalee".  A few ivy pearls embellish the card.

 
It's so nice to hear the birds chirping outside the window.  Spring is definitely on the way! 


Have a great weekend and thank you for your kind comments!
