Springtime Birdhouse

  Happy Monday, Hope your having a good day.  Today I want to share a birthday card that I made for one of my sister's.

I had a fun time putting this one together.  

This was my first time using it and I think it turned out so cute. Birds are my favorite animal so I am loving this die set from Wplus9. 

My sister had told me that she loves American gold finch birds, so I made the little bird yellow and black. 

I embossed the birdhouse with a woodgrain embossing folder. The blue and white paper is from my stash. All of the cardstock used for the bird and flowers are from my big container of scraps. The sentiment is from Stampendous.

I cut the black scalloped cardstock from my Cricut. Also added some lavender ribbon. 

Hope you have a good week. I will be leaving later today to visit my Mom for a few days and then I have an appointment on Thursday with one of my Doctor's. I am dreading that appointment. I could use some prayers on that.

Thanks for visiting and hope you can make it back. 

Stay Safe & Stay Crafty!
