Welcome to the Bird Show

I did get a layout started yesterday and just finished it!  I chose to do one of the NSD challenges over at Frosted Designs.  Ashley posted a recipe challenge yesterday: use 4 of the following: handmade embellishment, yellow, stripes or polka dots, at least 3 buttons, twine, and a punch.  Well, I managed to use all 6!

Shawn at Nuts About Sketches posted 4 bonus sketches this week and I decided to use this one.

I didn't actually use any hexagons as the sketch suggested, but I used those areas for embellishments.  For the bird and nest and "Welcome" I used my Cricut and the "Zooballoo" cartridge.  The papers were all from the My Mind's Eye "On the Bright Side" collection.  For the background, I took the yellow chevron paper and ripped it along one of the white lines.  On the left side of the cardstock, I used some Distress Stain and stamped with some bubble wrap.
