Mother's Day card for Cardmaking

I haven't made a Brayered Sky card in a long while, so i decided to give it a shot again. I needed to come up with a card for our monthly cardmaking venture at our church on April 29th.  I needed it to be simple enough anyone could make one and challenging enough for those advanced. This is what i came up with.

I used a new Stampin'up stamp set Called "Easter Blossoms" for the Branch. I embossed the image on the cardstock before doing anything else. I then Brayered the Blue sky with my adirondack ink and then the grass/ ground. I used my white gelly roll pen to accentuate the flowers of the tree. I used my new cricut cartridge called "Serenade" for the bird cage and the birds and stamped Happy Mother's Day in black on the bottom.
