Nesting birds

Welcome Oldies but Goodies blog hoppers!  This one certainly qualifies as an Oldie and I think it is a real Goodie!  I must of had this stamp for at least 10 years and I have never used it.  
The stamp is from Magenta, 08-047P.  There is no name on the stamp (I call it Nesting Birds) and searches on the internet including Ebay did not return any hits for this stamp.  This is one of those stamps that you love to hold and touch. 
I stamped it on Neenah solar white card stock and colored it using my Copics, matted on pieces of scrapbook paper from my piece pile. Added ribbon, hat pin and pearls as embellishments. It doesn't show up in the picture but card base was white card stock so I aged it using Tim Holtz Distress old paper ink with the blending tool.
The shape of this stamp reminds me of the vintage cabinet cards. I would love your comments or questions concerning this post. Thanks for visiting my blog.
