Birds in Bloom

Hello! I am slowly working my way (very slowly) through the anniversary challenges at Papertrey Ink. In 2008, they introduced a set called Out on a Limb, which I don't own, but I do have an anniversary set from a later year, Birds & Blooms, which has a limb with foliage. Not as interactive for the limb as the 2008 set, but I made it work. I had an unused watercolor square that I made with Ranger distress inks. I used Ranger distress markers to ink up the stamp since the leaves are attached to the branch. More than a few of the projects use ribbon and I found a scrap of aqua colored velvet ribbon that finished off the card at the top. I mounted the card on rustic cream cardstock to symbolize the nest the bird is resting in (is she resting if she's standing on her feet? probably not).
Thanks for looking.
