Sympathy Easel Card

Well this was definitely a fun card to make. I've made a couple of other easel cards but this one just flowed together.
It's for our weekly challenge at the  Crafty Card Creators Yahoo group - making a sympathy card.
As well as for these Challenges:
Humble Pie Challenge - Making an Easel Card, which has a fab tut for it here.
Pals Paper Arts Inspiration Challenge #31   using these 4 images on the right as inspiration, which was perfect for my papers: 
Lexi's Creations Challenge #8 - Anything Goes.
Incy Wincy Designs - Challenge #31 - A Touchy Feely Card  
Crafty Creations Challenge - Cut it Out - Pop it Up 
Sophisti Cat Challenge - Embossing
Hand Full of Stamps - Using the word WISH
The nest is a stamp a friend let me borrow, it was embossed with copper then place behind the cut out circle (paper from the Mariposa Paper Stack from DCWV). I cut a few pieces of the leaves so they would lay over the top to create a 3D effect. The little butterfly is also cut from this paper pad, two butterflies one atop the other to give dimension.
The little bird is a chipboard sticker from KC and Company, the sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly rub ons.
