Concept Card Challenge-New Nest

I am submitting another card for the new blog, Concept Card Challenge and their inaugural challenge, using the colours seen in this beautiful graphic.  I was going to try to make a CAS card as this is for my daughter and her boyfriend, so wanted something a little more hip...like they are!  But it just didn't work out that way.  I am "blaming" my direction of this card on the branch that I used, just not a "hip" branch I guess!  I hope that one day I will be able to create a CAS or CAG card too! (check the Card Concept blog for definitions and great examples of these) 
Well as for the need and want to create a new "nest" card for my daughter.  The happy couple moved 3 weeks ago from here in Austin to North Vancouver BC.  Yes, that's a far way...  They are having great adventures in this new city that they are making home and I wanted to send a little early Valentine card along with some other treats.  
I used Papertrey Ink heart dies, a Memory Box branch, a retired Stampin Up nest that I stamped in dark brown and fussy cut and added two Copic coloured tiny hearts in the center to cover up the eggs.  I used the same patterned paper from My Minds Eye "Indie Girl" as in my previous post too!

Thanks for taking a peek today and I hope that you are having a creative one!
