Birdies!  I've always liked bird/nest/wing/egg themed ATCs, I've just never done one myself.

This one I used a nest image downloaded from the internet (copyright free).  I aged the paper, stamped the letters and added the flower.

Click to enlarge.  Doesn't that birdie look so happy and snug?  There's a surprise when you lift her out of the nest.

The green bird is perched on a real twig.

Hi :) Very lovely atc´s, great details! Thank you so much for the atc and the other stuff :) Your atc was sooo beautiful, I love it !!
In a couple of days I will send an atc to you. We have moved back home, and finally it looks like a home again *lol*
Have a nice evening :o)

Hugs, Gry-Heidi

PS. The paper towels technique was a really great idea and it looks great! Thank you for sharing :)
