Bird's Nest

I just love distressing!  Hence, my blog name.  I distressed just about everything on this card and then ran distress ink over the edges.  The beautiful bird's nest image is from the Cherry Blossom Bird Set by Digi Design House and is coloured with Copics, but I forgot to write them down!  Here's my guess though:  eggs-BG07, BG02, BG45, YG93; leaves-YG17, YG07, YG03; nest-E99, E97, E35, E34, E21.  I cut the image right out and then placed it on a Kraft cardstock circle to keep with the vintage feel I was going for.  I stacked Pop Up Dots to pick the nest right up off the card.  Here's an angle shot to show the texture and dimension:
