Inspired by a Bird's Nest

Tosha provided the CCEE Stampers with a beautiful bird's nest inspiration photo from Williams-Sonoma for our challenge this week.  The bird eggs are truffles!  Yum! 



We were to create a card/project around whatever inspired us, whether it be the colors, textures, flowers, eggs, whatever came to mind.  I drew upon the colors of green and lavender with a splash of red, as well as creating the octagonal shape to somewhat resemble the shape of the bird's nest.



I stamped the Pocket Silhouettes  image in Old Olive, Almost Amethyst, and Lavender Lace and sponged Barely Banana and Bashful blue for the background and sky.  The sentiment and music note are from Happy Days by There She Goes.  The red flower is felt, and I used my Cropadile to put an Old Olive eyelet in the center of it, as well as a black brad.  The background dp is from SU's Bella Rose collection, and I love this MS flower border punch!

You can check out the cards/projects my friends made on our CCEE blog, as well as get the details for playing along with us!
