Scraplifted-- Bless This Nest from Jeannie

I Scrap lifted this card from Jeannie at "A Place For My Cards" .  I received her blessing. Thank you!
This is my take on her gypsy file/card.

I created this card using DCWV The Linen Closet to give to my niece Yessie (the same I have created an album full of two-page layouts for her pre-wedding events).  I added DCWV black card stock and a brown? for the branches.

Jeannie sent me her gypsy file. I did not have the Sweathearts cart for the "Bless This Nest" sentiment so I deleted her words/letters after I created mine using Gypsy Font (I had to delete!  first I tried the hide contour feature so I would not have to delete the words/letters for future use- when I get the Sweathearts cart!  Anyway, the Cricut would not cut until I deleted!
This is the inside of the card. I added the heart that I did not use on the front/cover.

Additionally, I do not own the MS brunch punch that Jeannie used, so I created my branches with the Potpourri Basket cart.  I inked everything with Ranger distress ink in walnut.

It is much better in person! It is 3D, heck, 4 dimensional!! and heavy with all the glue dots!
I like it so much I am going to be making two more!!
