Cardabilities Sketch #100

Hello everyone. Today I am crafting with the ladies at Cardabilities whom I have been joining for only a few weeks. I love their sketches! So many opportunities to add lots of lace, flowers and such. Here is The Sketch:

I started with a beautiful paper pad from DCWV called "Violet Leaf". This pad has all shades of purple along with a lot of foil. I added some patterned paper from K & Co, and also a bit of Neenah Solar White for the stamping. The tiny sentiment is from MSE and stamped with Distress Ink. I hand cut this to look like a waving banner. I used a few dies - Marianne Design for the little birdie, Poppystamps for the leaves (Lorelai Leaf) and Spellbinders for the curved flap. Added a bit of lace, some pearl trim and the nest with pearls for eggs at the last minute. I made the nest from fibers (I think it's called sisal) I bought in the floral section of my craft store. Here's my card:

Thanks for looking! Have a crafty day.
