nuthatch 1_edited-2

I stamped the image of the bird onto vanilla card stock using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and colored with Copic Markers. I used just the pinecone and tree piece of the image in the top two corners. The sentiment is stamped using Faded Jeans Distress ink. I added the button embellishment for balance. The card front is embossed using Damask Corner folder.

Lovely job on this card. I like how you kept the theme through the whole card by placing pine cones in the upper corners. Really like the embossing and how it peeks out from behind. Very nice. TFS!
