Spring is Time for Bird's Nests

 Second Post Today:
I made this card for Card Patterns Sketch 109 and CR84FN Color Challenge to use Kraft, Green, and Brown. Used card base of Kraft CS and layered with Brown CS that I punched with MS Scallop Dot Border. I stamped the Flourishes image of the bird's nest with Memento Rich Cocoa on Soft Sand CS, a lighter color than Kraft, and colored with pencils and OMS and highlighted with clear glaze pen. I cut image with Nesties circle die. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Bamboo Leaves and edged with brown ink. Both Stamps are from Flourishes "Spring Has Sprung". Assembled the card with Green ribbons from stash following the sketch.  Papers are GKD CS.
Challenges:
Card Patterns Sketch 109
The ABC Challenge: R is for Ribbon
Tuesday Throwdown: Use spring Theme.
