A New Sketch from Seize the Sketch!

Good Morning Everyone! 

It feels so good to say it is April 1st!  Not because is it April Fool's of course, but because the very word, April, sounds like spring!
 I used a springy new, soon-to-be-released  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps set for my card for this week's Seize the Sketch sketch-

Here is your sketch~

As you can see, I took a few liberties with the sketch because, well, because I never seem to be able to follow the rules! 
This stamp set is so stinkin' cute- I just love the nest, which I stamped and colored twice, cutting out the second one and popping it up on dimensionals.  All of the images have matching dies, but of course, when I was making this card, I did not think I had them or lost them or just plain wasn't sure if I indeed had them or not-so I fussy cut out the tree branch and nest.  I tucked a few strands of burlap in between the two nests for a bit of texture. I embellished my fab Hemptique bow with a paper button that I made with my new PTI dies.  There is a clear heart shaped SU button on top of them, but it is hard to see in the pic. 
There is so much great inspiration on the Seize the Sketch Blog; stop by to see what the ladies have made for you!  Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed April!  ;)
