I created another Awash with Flowers card using the exact same colors and pieces of card stock as my first one.  This is the second version.

I used this one for my class on Friday – I actually let everyone choose between making this one or my original design that you can see here.

The “Wonderful Mother” from the Well Scripted stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini catalog was used so it could be a mother’s day card.  Stamped on Whisper White and punch with the Scallop Oval punch.  I added the little leaf petals at the bottom to dress it up a bit.  Then layered it on a Wide Oval punched from Melon Mambo.  The layer of Basic Black behind it is also the Wide Oval punch – either use two or cut one in half and add each half to the back of the other one so you can just see a hint of it.

I wanted to show you the cardinal eggs that I found on Friday – the mom finally left her nest late in the afternoon – that seems to be the norm for most of the moms from what I can tell. 

She has two eggs but one is much smaller than the other.  When I checked on Saturday – the smaller egg was gone and only one egg was in the nest.  She seems to be gone today so maybe she decided her eggs weren’t viable this time or another predator came in and took the egg.  I don’t really know.  I’ll let you know if she lays another one.

As for the other nests – the other moms were all sitting this morning – I need to go back and count the days to see how long before we can expect babies to hatch.
