A little birdie told me.......something starting with B

Hello bloggers,
I have a quickie today all about birds and birdhouses. Beccy at Beccy's Place is having a Birthday Bash ...a whole month of challenges, tutorials, freebies all to celebrate the first anniversary of Beccy's Place. The first of 4 weekly challenges is...Something starting with B.... and this is my card..B for birdhouse.


I used my new embossing folder with birdhouses for the background. Not sure if you can see it too well. I added a bit of colour on the tree and other spots. The image is one of Beccy's...Birhouse, coloured with Distress inks and cut out, mounted with foam tape. Added a few flowers and some little birds cut with my new Memory box die.  The grass is a Marianne design die. The sentiment is computer generated.

I hope you will pop over to Beccy's Place and have fun at her Birthday Bash. I will enter the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations Crafts...#27...Embossing/Anything goes
The Crafty Bloggers Network..#8....Anything goes
