Birthday birdhouse

I loved the picture of the little house in the latest Play Date Cafe challenge, #47. Although I was inspired by the colour combo, I just loved that wee house, so went with that and made a birdhouse for a friend's daughter's birthday. So far I've lined the nest with tissue paper strips and I intend to fill it with little goodies, makeup and jewelry.

I'm not sure if you can see very well in this photo, but I scored pieces of white card at regular intervals to give the effect of cladding. The template for the bird house can be found here.


Stamps - WMS vintage labels 4, PTI birthday bash sentiments
Card - PTI new leaf, SU! tempting turquoise
Paper - PTI bitty dots basic
Punch - SU! two step bird
Button - SU! designer buttons
Clip - SU!
Scallop scissors

Fab use of this weeks colors, I'm sure your friends daughter will love it. The score marks add the extra dimension the house needs! Thanks for playing at the PDCC.
