Welcome little bird

I realized the other day that although I have quite a prolific stash of birthday cards now, I'm completely out of baby themed cards.  People around me are having too many babies for me to keep up with!  So I thought I'd make a gender neutral baby card to add into my stash.

I cut the birds and the branch both from Zooballoo.  What a fun cartridge that I don't use nearly often enough!  I added some detail to the leaves and to the bodies of the birds with gel pens.  I wanted to add a little dimension, so I strung some of my favorite kraft Trendy Twine around the nest haphazardly.  It made me think of twigs and things that the birds would make their nest out of.

I added a stamp from Jaded Blossom's Simple Sayings 2 in the top corner and three brown pearls in the other corner, and then finished the bottom off with some washi tape.  I have to start using up some washi tape so I have room to buy more!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges
