Little Birdhouse Card

This card measure 5ins x 5ins and uses a hand cut, white linen effect card blank.
Bird and Bird House CardThe wooden birdhouse tags came from The Works (current stock) and I wondered if they would marry up with some little wooden bird embellishments that I have had forever.  I was thrilled when the proportions were perfect!

I put a scrap of red, spotty paper behind the heart to give the birdhouse a little colour, stuck on the bird and then added punched leaves and flowers with tiny pearl centres

…… but, it looked a little bland, so I carefully added turquoise to the eaves, an extra flower on the bottom and a little faux stitching and sets of three dots here and there with a black fine liner pen, which all bought the card together.
