I made this card for the ABC double challenge, letter N and New Home. A nest for "N" and a "new home" for the baby birds when they hatch.
I stamped and colored the nest, bird and eggs with Prismacolor pencils, then fussy cut them all out. I used 3D adhesive squares to pop up the bird, nest and one egg onto my background dsp. I drew a branch for my bird's perch. I added Crystal Lacquer to the eggs and the bird's eye. I layered the finished panel onto dark green cardstock and onto cream colored card. tfl

What a terrific card this is for the letter N Gracie. I adore nature-themed cards and this one is really special with this watchful bird making sure her nest is safe. I wish I had your drawing skills because that is one fabulous branch you have created. The DSP you chose really sets a wonderful stage for this card too. The recipients are going to love this card you made for them. ~Karen.

Great "N" card! Love your branch addition...so perfect with this lovely nature paper background. Lovely coloring on your nest, egg, and sweet bird and branch! Popping them off the page was a great idea to show them off rather than blend into the background nature scene.
