Feather your Nest

Theme Thursday posted a challenge near and dear to my heart: Birds, Eggs and Nests… 🙂  Being a Robin, I just couldn’t refuse!

I took a vintage Easter card, cut it apart a bit and glued it to a little piece of scrapbooking paper (just shy of 5×7), then added my own nest and sparkly happiness in terms of a glittery bird and my all-too-favorite glitter glue outlining…  Someday I’ll run out of glitter and I’ll move on to something else.  But for the time being, the glitter makes me happy.

When I was flipping through a book of scrapbook pop-outs, I came across the “sparkle”  tag, which seemed to make all too much sense… so why not add it?!?

Sparkle Love!

I actually like the way my little nest turned out.  I chopped off some little pieces of raffia and glued them to the egg, then slid my birdy inside.

The Nest

I had fun with this.  Because of my name, I just have an affinity for all things “bird.”  And with adding the nest, I was able to retain my 3-D thing!  Yay!
