For the birds

I had this image from "A Day for Daisies" that I have been playing with in my head and finally worked it out.  It has six birds on it and my thought was always to raise one or two of them which I did with pop dots. I colored the center of the flowers with stickles to have them look like cherry blossoms.  I found these wonderful nests from Prima which I had to add and this net ribbon from Ribbon Carousel which is like the nest material.
I then did two more cards using this weeks SC383 sketch.  One using Close to My Heart Ink and a Stampin' Up Marker to color the image and then I chalked some clouds.  The sentiment is from Close to My Heart using Distress Ink.
With dance recitals coming up, I made a card using the gorgeous image from TLC, Create and added some flowers instead of a circle sentiment.
