You're in my thoughts!

Hi there!  Oh my!!  Have you seen the gorgeous new limited time stamp set and Thinlits bundle Stampin' Up! is offering this month?!!  It is so pretty!!  The stamp set is called Thankful Branches and looks like this:

I played a little bit with it this morning and here is a quick card I came up with:

I turned the treetop into a bird's nest! I cut it in half, sponged the edges and layered one half on top of the other half! It worked perfectly!

I tucked in some pieces of linen thread and did a little bit of background stamping to fill some of the white space. I sponged the edges of the card and folded over the top corner to give it a bit of a worn appearance. 

The leaves and branch are also from the Beautiful branches Thinlit set. It coordinates beautifully with the stamp set. I used an aqua painter to watercolor the bird.

Here is a close up shot of the nest.

Here are the supplies I used to make this card:

This is such a great stamp bundle!!  I cannot to play more with it!  I see oodles of possibilities with it!

Ok, I better zoom!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I will be back soonest to visit!  Have a super day!

Ann Marie, I like this so much I cased it and posted on Stamp Junkies and Laurel Beard's Facebook pages. I didn't put it on the SU because it had some things that were not SU...but most of it was.
