This is for today's challenge to use chipboard on a card. Since I use chipboard lots--I wanted to do something different....
I am thinking of my husband a lot because he is TDY and it is our baby's 2nd birthday today and on Saturday it is our anniversary. This is always a fun week--but he is sad missing it all! (Or maybe he is happy to be away from the chaos!!!)
Anyway, I wanted to to a chipboard nest -- we have had three families of birds making very low nests in our backyard in the past two months. It has been really neat to watch.
I used chipboard for the base of the nest and then built the nest on top! Lots of layering of twigs...and then it was done. Whew...this card is so heavy!!!
The bg is cuttlebugged...the blue cs is sponged with whisper white for clouds (cannot see on scan), the leaves are colored and then I applied glassy glaze to get more of a leaf look. I am not sure I am liking the color of the leaves on this so I may end up changing that later on.
I used my pretty neglected Martha Stewart bird and a sentiment from My Favorite Things (Simply Said).
Thanks for looking!!!

OH MY GOODNESS... this is just awesome! I love it! I was just thinking that would be a cute card to give to my neighbors saying happy bird watching since every year they have birds make a nest on their garage motion detector light! His kids love watching the babies grow. Thanks for the inspiration! Consider it CASED and Favorited! GREAT JOB!!
