A little bird house

Please click here for Word Play Weekend Challenge #3.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Whimsy Stamps recently released some new gorgeous birdhouses by Moon Cookie Gallery, and I finally found some time to play. They are all so gorgeous but this one, "Scalloped Birdhouse", is my favorite. It can be found here.


I thought I'd get out my copics for this one. I am going to try using them some more, hate that they are collecting dust.
I just love my derwent coloursoft pencils so much!

I really wanted to make a simple one layer card with this one, but kept adding to it and this is what it turned out to be. Not sure if I like the gingham ribbon though. Wish I added turquoise ribbon instead, but it's too late now as it is all glued down, so I won't be changing it.

I don't know if you can tell by the picture, but the roof and the flower were added with pop up dots.

Products used:
Scalloped Birdhouse (whimsy stamps)
SEntiment (stampin up -retired)
Papers: Stampin Up, Neenah
Accessories: silver cord, brads, glitter, ribbon
Tools: scallop edge punch (Stampin up), copics

I'd love to enter my card to the following challenges:
I am off to do some cleaning now :-(
Hope you'll check back tomorrow for my new Stamp Something card! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!
