Nest in the Branches

Good Wednesday Morning
Sunday's Featured Stamper on SCS was angellacrockett - wow what a fantastic gallery she has over there. Beautiful work. I chose her card with the nest within the branches because I knew it would give me a chance to use my "Nature's Nest". I changed up the colours but kept Kraft as part of it. My nest didn't have any branches attached to it so I created some from my Two-Step Bird punch. Angella's card has a wonderful swirl of pearls coming from the top of her nest....I tried to create this by using the swirl from "Priceless" - I covered some of the main swirls with TomBow Glue and then added silver microbeads.
I didn't distress any of the edges for this card because the "Clean and Simple" challenge this
week on Splitcoast was to have clean edges.

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday - it's Early Out today which means staff meeting. Some are good, some are bad - we'll see what the day holds.

Thanks for stopping by -
