New Nest

Hello, it's Bridget here with a New Home card to share with you today.  
I love the recently released set Love Birds - the sentiments 
can be combined and used on such a variety of occasions!
For this card I sponged a background using clouds cut with 
Clouds and Raindrops dies and Stampin Up Cool Caribbean ink.  
I then used the wood effect stamp from Grunge Borders to make some
 "planks" of wood before cutting them into strips to create a little fence. 
 I ran the edges of each little strip across the stamp pad to give a 
little extra definition.  Mini pewter brads were used for "nails.
I used a bit of chain from a broken necklace to make a 
little hanging sign. The Love Birds Dies 
make it so easy to cut and layer the branch, eggs and nest. 
Green grass was created with the Fence and Grass Dies.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Fabulous card Bridget. What a great scene. The fence looks amazing and I love the little details like the chain, and the tiny flowers.

What a fabulous scene, Bridget. I can't believe you created the fence from stamped strips! Adorable sign as well.

What super cuteness with the little fence and branch and bird nest!
