Bless this Nest

Wow.  Three posts in one day.  I cannot believe how much I have managed not to do this week and yet I have indulged in not one but two challenges.  The joy!  Here is a card I made for the Color Q Challenge #30 and for the 2 Sketches 4 You Challenge.  I would never have picked this color combination but I really love the end result.  I kept it very simple using only cardstock and a stunning image I found at The Graphics Fairy.  To be honest there are so many layers of cardstock on this one that I don't think I could have got much more on it.  Well, maybe a few pearls.
