'a happy hello' in a row

I wanted to play along with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week, gave the sketch a turn and thought the little squares would make perfect windows for this sweet stack of birds from Remember Happiness, Unity's August 2008 Kit of the Month. Although I love this Basic Grey patterned paper, I think it's a little busy for this card--I tried to tie it together with my wavy border and SU ribbon and buttons. The birds are coloured with copics. And since Emily asked, I used my smaller square nestabilities to punch out the squares--they made it easy (although maybe a little time-consuming) because I just had to line up the next square with the subtle embossed lines from the previous one.

Thanks for looking!

Wow, this is so gorgeous and unique! I love how you did the windows and stacked the birds. Can you tell me a little more about how you did the windows?
