Birds and Nest Congratulations Card

Apologies first off for the quality of the first image. Can you tell it is birds and a nest - a beautiful image let down by my dodgy photography. The image is from The Graphics Fairy. It's printed on gloss paper and cuttlebugged.

In "real" life it is quite delicate and the embossed Swiss Dots enhance the look rather than detract from it. The second photo shows my first attempt at stamping on ribbon and the layering of my tiny scraps of card with my much loved Martha Stewart doily punch. Next time, I'll leave off the exclamation mark, I think... learning all the time.
