The Play Date Cafe challenge #70. And, what bright, cheerful colors they are!!
I used my new Spellbinder's Decorative Window Scene die cut (exclusive to Heartfelt Creations) and removed the window panes for this one.
I cut my birdhouses away from the sentiment which encircled the card and barely painted the wood and trees with a sandy color. My leaves are from Kraft paper .
No, I did not make the zipper flower I used, although I have seen a tutorial showing how to make it. I was in Wal-Mart looking at ribbon one day and just a bit down the aisle, there it was. I rather like it.
I distressed my paper with a Distressed embossing folder to match the old birdhouses.
I'm entering this card into these challenges:
