A Nature Walk Spring Card

This card is a 3" x 6" card and fits into a small open end Very Vanilla envelope (#107286).  The images are stamped on Very Vanilla card stock in Early Espresso ink.  They have been colored with Stampin' Pastels (#120962) and Blender Pens (#102845). The eggs have also been shaded with a Bashful Blue marker.  The plants in the background were stamped in Crumb Cake ink and also colored with Pastels and blender pens.
The nest was stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla and cut out.  It was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).
I was looking for coordinating colored paper and chose the Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP (retired) to use behind the top layer and on the envelope flap. Both the Chocolate Chip layer and the Baja Breeze patterned paper have lots of texture, which adds so much to the vintage feel of the card.
The stamp sets used are Nature Walk (#121997) clear mount set for the bird and background, and Nature's Nest (# 113826) for the nest.
 I like to make different sized cards occasionally, and this long narrow one worked fine for this design.  Hope you enjoy it.
Tomorrow I will show a card I've made for the OWH (Operation Write Home) Blog Hop.  Be sure to stop by and see my creation, then hop on over to other blogs for some more great cards!  The Bunny Hop will begin at 10 A.M. (Eastern).
Thanks for looking!
