MPS Design Team Entry

Robyn on My Pink Stamper is having a Design Team call and I am so excited to enter my card.  This will be my third time trying so hopefully third time is a charm, as the saying goes.

The requirements are to use the colors orange, turqoise, brown and green and one addition color if you wanted to. 

I decide to make a twisted easel card using Give a Hoot cricut cartridge and cut the bird at 3 1/4 and the nest at 2 1/2 inches.   Thought it would be fun to cut leaves and place them under the nest as if it was in the tree, so I cut the green and orange leaves out at 1 inch.
All the paper I used is DCWV and some from my scrap box.  Some of the leaves I turned up to help give it some dimension and help the Easel card stand up.

Thank you for looking and keep your fingers crossed for me! :)
