DRS Designs Challenge #173-Hot Trends-Beautiful Backgrounds

 Good morning!
Today starts a new challenge at DRS Designs,  "Beautiful Backgrounds."

I've done the Watercolor Bokeh technique for my background.  There is an excellent tutorial at SCS here
I stamped, colored and cut out my branches and birds then made a little nest from a 1/2" glue dot and fiber wound around and around.  I added three tiny turquoise beads for eggs (since it is for a Mother's Day card).  I also used an embossing folder from Darice and made my front sentiment into a banner of sorts then added a threaded button ( NO naked buttons!!!)
Except for the fussy cutting, this was a very simple card to make!

Thanks for stopping by!

I totally love your bg Robin - it is soooo beautiful. I watched a tutorial on doing a bg like this and actually started my card with the intention of doing it too. I got lazy along the way and went in a totally different direction. After seeing your card, I wish I hadn't. So pretty and so well done! Hugz

Your bg is just beautiful, Robin! The colors are just lovely and make the perfect backdrop for your sweet little birds.
