Elegant Bird-Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch #261

A new week means a new sketch challenge over at Stamping 411.

Here is my take on the sketch.

Elegant Bird 007

This card was inspired by a dove setting in a nest on top of a porch light located in the courtyard and by a side entry door at the house of a friend of mine.  I stayed at this house over the weekend while I was in NM for my stamp clubs.  The dove was visible from inside the house, so I snapped this quick photo.  I am told that this is her 2nd nest in the same location this year.  She successfully raised 2 chicks and is currently setting on 1 egg.  My first thought was the porch light being turned on in error and the nest being in jeopardy of a fire.  My friend has wisely removed the light bulb!  Best wishes for this mama dove!
