SOS2 - Oldies but Goodies

Good Morning, hoping your week started out nicely and you'll have a fabulous day today! It's supposed to be over 30 C, close to 40 C with humidex. (What a joy when you have no AC ;) )
Now to my card. For the second Shopping Our Stash Challenge we want you to dig in into your oldies - find the oldes stamp set - yes, the one you probably forgot about and use it.
For my card I used Touch of Nature from Stampin Up! It was released somewhere around 2005 and it was the first set I fell in love with. I used it at my SU demo and just had to have it. I really should use it more often..
I stamped the bird, colored it, embossed it with clear EP and then stamped the fern and sponged the background. All done with SU inks. CS, brads and DP are from Stampin Up too!
I used the sketch from the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.

I'm also entering it into:
