Birthday Birdhouse

     I have a real passion for images from Beccy's Place and I love all the different birdhouses she's done.  This one just begged to be a birthday card.  Actually, this one was begging just to be used !  I've had it nearly 2 years and have never used it before.  Apologies to Beccy.  :-D


I started with the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.


     The image is colored with ProMarkers and die cut.  I cut a pink frame with one of my framing dies from Spellbinders, then heat embossed polka dots onto it.  I cut a dark brown frame with another die a size larger.  The ribbon laced through the smaller frame and tied into a bow at the top came from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The ribbon for the green bow has been in my stash since last fall and never been used.  The sentiment is a clear stamp from Verve, stamped with brown ink (also never been used.)

     I'm off to church this morning, then back home to have a relaxing and refreshing day in the craft room.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
