Sweet Little Birdhouse.

Happy Saturday to all, its been a lovely early Autumn day here and the sun has been out.  It does make you feel better.

Today's card I  have called Sweet Little Birdhouse and I have had lots of fun with this one.  I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;

I used a template from Craftwork Cards to make the birdhouse shape for the cards and covered with papers from my stash.  I have used Versimark Ink and Melt Dust Copper Embossing Powder to stamp and emboss the images on the card.  These stamps are all part of a fabulous set  Cl- 329 from Crafty Individuals and these have been a delight to work with.  I also used a Brass Charm embellishment on the front of the card from Craft Individuals.  I have embossed the border trims with liquid pearl drops and used vintage seam binding and flowers from my stash to decorate the front of the card.  I have used distressing ink 'Vintage Photo' from Tim Holtz on the edges of the card and I think it looks very shabby chic.

A closer view of embossed stamp details and decoration on the card and distressing of edges.

Floral decoration on top of card and showing image of inside greeting.

I have made a pocket inside of the card using a Kanban topper and greeting.  I have used another topper to fit inside the pocket.   This has a ribbon and bird charm embellishment from Crafty Individuals.

Showing the inside of the card with embellished images, distressing to edges and detail.  I have really enjoyed making this card as it got my old brain working.  I hope you like it, thank you for reading this post. 

 I am having a lot of problems leaving comments on other crafter's blogs.  I like to look at all of the card in challenges I have entered and have tried, so many times, to leave comments and been unable to.  It is very frustrating.  I would like to take this opportunity to say what stunning work is done by crafters and to thank you all for the joy you provide with your work.  It really makes my day to see a stunning card.  Your work is all appreciated even when comment is unable to be made. 

 Sending warmest wishes to all.
