A New Nest ?

Friends have just moved into a brand new home and I wanted to make a card to send to them.  As I was working on the design I realised I had followed the sketch for this week's challenge over on the Simply Less is More blog, so this will be a second entry from me this week.

For the background I once again used one of my favourite techniques 'direct to paper' using Tumbled Glass Distress ink.  I wanted to create an impression of windows and I think it worked !

I then used Marianne's dies to cut out the bird on branch and the little birdhouse using SU! Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I created the sentiment on my computer and matted that over a scrap of CC card before attaching it using PinFlair glue to raise it a little off the base card.

I hope our friends like their card and I think I'm safe to publish it today as I don't think they have internet access sorted yet, so won't see it on my blog before they receive it.

Short posting today, I'm busy getting organised ready for my trip to my Dad's tomorrow.

love it! I was going to get another little birdhouse die at Bunny Zoes as they have discount, but the only one still in stock is the one I already have! ah well, I'll just have to bring some card and cut out at yours! glad you are well enough to travel to see your Dad - let me know when you are back home again.
hugs, annie x

This is lovely Wynneth, it's amazing how we find ourselves re-jigging ideas which have been successful or that we found satisfying!
Thanks once more.

I missed this one Wynneth - it is absolutely stunning. Love the ink-pad-to-paper background and the off-the-edge image. Vicky x
