Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #22

Hello everyone!! We are having a beautiful morning here in Central Texas.....it's a good thing because I am taking my Mother shopping. She needs a good jacket to wear to church so we are heading to the mall in a few hours. We have to stop at the library first so she can check out some more books by David Baldacci....my sweet little 90 year old mother loves murder mysteries...go figure...LOL!!! Anyway....I want to share the card I made for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #22. I took a few liberties with the sketch.....hope that's ok!!!

The bird image from Sewing Box-Hugs was stamped on various papers from October Afternoon Modern Homemaker and Seaside, cutout, and attached with dimensionals. The branch was hand drawn and cutout of Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown. The Martha Stewart Fern Punch was used to make the nest and the background was sewn around the edges and distressed with Ranger Walnut Distress ink. The sentiment is from WM's Asian Gardens set.

What a pretty card! I really love how you paper pieced the birds and added the fern punch, just a happy and warm card. We having great weather here in North TX as well. Now I know why we moved, besides my DH job, from New England. Sounds like a great day with mom.
