My Favorite Songbird

If you have been following my blog for a while, you probably know that I love birds, and have many bird related stamps.  When I saw the CASE-study 100th challenge, and it was all bird cards, I knew I had to join in the fun.  This sweet pair of birds in their nest is from Memory Box, and is great for many different occasions.  I painted them with my Twinkling H2O's to resemble bluebirds, and added a little bling on the branches, and faux stitching on the edges of the card front.  I hand drew the stitching, because I had a little "incident"  with my sewing machine several years ago, and smoke poured it, and now I am reluctant to use it!  I felt the bottom needed a little something, so I added some music, since they are "song birds".  Here's a close up of the birds.
