A really bright baby card

Hello lovely bloggers,

Here is my card for the challenge at CAS - Colours and Sketches. Only after making the card did I read the fine print which said you HAVE to use a stamp. Never mind, atleast I made a card in the bargain. I have used my latest die which is a Japanese make and it works like butter, so easy and smooth to die cut with. The blue scalloped nestie and round one are my new purchases as well. Thought I should inaugurate them instead of waiting for weeks, months and years, lol. I have painted the nesties with acrylic paint in a dab, dab fashion. The printed paper was sent by Terry and so were the gems. Now let me share a secret here - the gems were used to hide some flaws on the round nestie. And guess what I forgot to colour the eye of the bird.  

I will enter this in the following:

See you later.

Monica, it's really quite brilliant how you are able to put these cards together, coordinating the colors and making something so wonderful! I see the paper and why couldn't I make something like that? LOL! I was hoarding the papers and lost ideas on what to do with them. I love the nesties and you know what, it's okay the stork's eye isn't colored - that background gives it the color - it's really very lovely what you've done, Monica! Fantastic! ;-D
