Love Nest!

This card is for today's Clean and Simple(CAS20) challenge. Thanks, Jen!!! I created a small tent design card with a dangling bird cage. I kept the card look pretty simple. And, once I had the design figured out, it turned out to be pretty simple.

I am using Flourishes Love Nest set. I stamped by bird cage and colored with the newly released Flourishes Copic Color Collections.
I used the Water, Flesh Tones, and Warm Neutrals color collections. I paper pieced one of the little birds that come in this set with some urban prairie
basic gray dp.

I scored one of the inside back panels to create some texture. I adhered my hanging birdcage and finished my card with some organdy ribbon and loop ribbon. I added a gold pearl dome to the sentiment. The picture to the right shows the card closed which measures 4.25 X 3.75.

NOTE: I am NOT pregnant!!! LOL!!! Just one of many sentiments in this set!!!
