A birthday card

Made for an upcoming birthday of a special friend.  I'm entering it into this month's Hero Arts challenge.  The birdhouse is a digital image from Tiffany Doodles.  I pieced it using an excerpt from The Secret Garden and a digital paper.  Everything else has been stamped. 

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps: S5215 Clouds, LP169 Bird Trio, CL272 All Occasion Messages, LP128 Artistic Windows (woodgrain on posts), H5029 Flowering Flourish, CL377 Be Happy (grass edging, stamped on reverse of printed paper and cut out), broken china and vintage photo distress inks for distressing edges, Memories artprint brown ink, button.

  9. Lin, I really love the bird nest photo as your header - wondering if they are real eggs - the color is gorgeous! I also really admire your creative skills in making nature scenes, this one is so delightful to look at!
