Summer Bluebirds

Hello to all my friends and followers today, I hope you are having a good week so far, finally it looks like we may get to see some sunshine in the next couple of days-woohoo!!
I've been having a little play with a freebie stamp set which came with my magazine last month-I'd completely forgotten about them until the other day so as soon as I found them I wanted to make a card.
I cut the image with a scalloped circle die and made a faux nestie and coloured the image with my promarkers. The papers are a mix -the back paper is First Edition and the front one is from my stash.  I added a strip which I punched with a Martha Stewart doily punch (I do love this punch!) and added some paper flowers, a punched heart and a die cut corner cut with a docrafts freebie die. I also die cut a leafy flourish and I added some blue gems and some glitter to finish off. I had intended to colour all of the die cut elements in blue but decided that I quite liked the soft effect of leaving them all white!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
