Have you ever hung a lovely natural wreath on your door only to have birds make a nest in it? I have had that experience with Mockingbirds. At the time it was a bit of a nuisance having to clean the front porch constantly while mother bird set forth an attack as I approached the nest but in the long run, it was a fun experience watching the eggs hatch and the chicks mature until they left the nest. The wreath was ruined by the time it was all over and was discarded.
When I saw the inspiration photo at Inspired by All the Little Things #6, I was reminded of my Mockingbird experience so created a card with a bluebird nest in a wreath.
