Missing you - bird from Nate's ABCs

Hello my crafty friends!  I ordered both cartridges together and  I think I like the Nate's ABCs cartridge just as much as the Kate's ABCs cartridge.  The images on both cartridges are so well done!

The black background with the scalloped bottom was cut at 5 inches from the Elegant edges cartridge. The scalloped oval was cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge at 3.86" wide and 4.71 inches height and then rotated 90 degrees.  I cut an oval from the George cartridge at 3.26" wide by 3.98 inches high to go behind the blue scalloped frame.

This sweet bird, branch, nest and all there layers were cut from the Nate's ABCs cartridge at 2.33 inches

The stamped sentiment is from the Sweet Sentiments #2 stamp set.  

I zig-zag stitched all along the inside edges of the scalloped frame and then added a straight stitch along the card base.  Stitching adds so much to a card!

The patterned papers are from My Minds Eye and the cream is from PaperTrey ink.

Here is the card again:

Have a wonderful day!
