Birds in Blue

I am just loving these bird nesties from Spellbinders...The card base is from a piece of embossed cardstock I have had for years, so not a clue on it...The pattern paper, same thing, except it was a 8.5 x 11 sheet at one time, now I just have a few random scraps of it left...I used my Martha border punch, I love those punches...and added a piece of the pattern paper to begin my color scheme, I cut the large and medium bird from white cardstock, colored with Stonewashed blue Adirondack ink, then embossed with my Cuttlebug embossing folders, and rubbed more ink over the embossed areas...I added a piece of beautiful ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and some silk flowers...I then punched that Martha punch using two colors of cardstock, that coordinated for my foliage behind the flower, I used some flower buttons and gold brads to embellish the flower and ribbon...
