On a bird binge?

I appear to be in my bird phase :))  It happens every year - being able to open the windows and hear the birds busy with their nests is a sure sign of spring to me.

ABNH window card

supplies: white and spring green cardstock, Hero Arts S5050 Wavy Leaf Pattern, stamped twice using peeled paint and shabby shutters distress inks, LP169 Bird Trio, colored with Prismacolor pencils, CL342 Everyday Sayings, stamped in Memories Artprint Brown ink, Nesties Labels Four, and stamped inside is Great Impressions E580, again colored with pencils, then shaded with tumbled glass distress ink

I made this card to enter the 2nd challenge over at A Blog Named Hero.  We're to make a window card. I pulled out some of my older Hero Arts stamps and paired them up with a newer sentiment.

This is delightful Lin! We've been having a ball watching a robin build a nest in our honeysuckle vine:)

How PRETTY Lin! Love your card face full of vines and dots. And what a sweet bird perched on the front, well done!!

So cute to have the bird peeping in to see her nest, Lin. Great coloring and I love the two-tone vines.

Love the nest inside the card.
As a bird mom (I have a cockatiel and a budgie) I am always on a bird kick.
