Prickley Pear Mondays - Nesting Finches

Good morning dear friends!!!  I hope you had a blessed Easter yesterday!  I had a wonderful day with my family!  My kids came over for breakfast, we went to church and then had a fabulous Easter dinner afterwords!  I am so thankful for my kids and I am thankful for each and every moment I spend with them!!
Today is a day off from school, so I will be working on cards, cleaning and the dreaded taxes!! I have lots to do, so I better get busy!!!

Today's card for Prickley Pear Mondays uses their beautiful Nesting Finches Stamp:

I stamped the finches onto a die cut piece of white paper:
and then stamped the image onto patterned papers and fussy cut the birds, nest, flowers and leaves. Then I paper pieced the images onto the die cut.  I inked the edges and added some Copic Marker accents.
I used the sketch from Card Patterns which is being sponsored by Prickley Pear Stamps this week!! Join in the fun and you could win a $15 gift certificate from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps!!!

Supplies Used:
Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Nesting Finches
Pink Paislee Patterned Paper: London Market and Spring Jubilee 6x6 Paper Pads
Papertrey Ink Dies:  Half and Half Die, Mat Stack 5 die, Mat Stack 5 Layerz Die, Double Ended Banner Die
Copic Markers:  0 Colorless Blender, T3 Toner Gray, R85 Rose Red, and E57 Light Walnut

Thanks for stopping by!!!
I hope you have a wonderful day!!
