Shabby Bird House Card

Hello there

I decided to check out some of the blogs I follow and look for a challenge to enter.Over on Mojo Monday they have a current challenge of Tall and Skinny. Hmmm. This was a challenge as I never do tall and skinny, so I gave it a go. I am afraid I didn’t quite manage to get too tall and skinny with this card! Although the suggested measurements were 3.5 x 5.5 I only managed to go down to 4 x 5.5 inches. Well . . . what is .5 of an inch between friends?
Here is the Sketch Mojo Monday provided to base your design on
Here is my interpretation of the sketch x

I used my old faithful Maja Design Vintage spring basics papers for this little creation. I have to say this little 6x6 pack doesn’t owe me a penny. I have made so many cards and creations from this pack and it’s still going strong. Each and every one of the sheets are just so pretty and perfect for my shabby chic style.

The little bird house is a Marianne Design die I have. It also has a stamp which makes it so versatile to use. Isn’t it cute? I cut out the little bird and flowers from some of the Maja paper pack too.
I hope the photographs do it justice, I am having a bit of an issue trying to take photographs of my cards just lately! Maybe I need to go on a photography course lol.
Thanks for coming over to take a peep
