Sweet Stamps- Sketch

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is a Sketch:
 Here is the Sketch:

  The image is stamped in Ranger embossing ink, then in Barn Door ink- then embossed with Clear EP. The  nest is a Technique Junkies technique called Bird's Nest.  The Coordinations cardstock was embossed with the  EP and sanded  The designer paper is by Authentique- the pad has the musical strip at the top of each strip.. I added rhinestones for some bling on the greenery- from a Cheery Lynn Designs Die.
