Bird's Nest Thank You

Hello, everyone.  I know I shouldn't be crafting - so much to do for the move - but I needed a bit of a break.  I really wanted to play along in the linky party over at Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage and also the sketch challenge at From the Heart Stamps.  

The beautiful bird image is from Crafty Secrets' Creative Scraps - Birds and Blossoms.  I used my Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles and Poppy Stamps Curious Cat dies.  The "Thank You" stamp is a wood-mount from Studio G, and the DP is from ColorBok.  The yellow cardstock is from Walmart, and the navy is Recollections.  I punched two little hearts using a Michaels mini punch.  I doodled some faux stitching around the image and along the left edge and bottom of the card with a Tombow marker. Here's the sketch I followed at From the Heart Stamps i {heart} sketches (I flipped it):

Like how you framed the bird image. I like Birds. I have enjoyed seeing & photographing Robins & BlueJays in trees in my yard being born, growing up & even flying out of their nest.
