Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge-Speckled

We hope you'll play along!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!  Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge blog for all the challenge info and deadline.

Welcome Little One card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Clear and Simple StampsI was inspired by the photo's soft color scheme and array of speckled eggs.  Based on that I created a gender neutral baby card using the Tweet Notes stamp set from Clear and Simple Stamps.  I used images from the set to stamp the branch, nest, and egg images directly on a cream cardstock panel.  The teeny, tiny bird was stamped on a scrap of cream cardstock, colored with a Copic marker, then carefully cut out and adhered to the panel using foam tape. 

The set's "welcome little one" sentiment was stamped beneath the branch in pale green ink.  I used my MISTI so I could double stamp the text to make it a bit darker.  After adding a pair of favor flag die cuts to the top of the panel, I accented them with a tiny piece of knotted green grosgrain ribbon.  The finished panel was adhered to a coordinating pale green card base.
