As I was perusing my usual blogs, one that I stop at first everyday is Nicole's at Papertrey Ink. http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/ She is an amazing talent and so willing to share her gift with everyone. A couple of days ago she posted a little birdhouse that she made and even included a free download of the template. I fell in love with it and had to make my own. Here is my version.
Here is the front view.
The Stamp sets used are Background Basics - Retro, Warm Hospitality both from Papertrey Ink. The round So Tweet Stamp is from Snag 'em Stamps. Kraft, New Leaf, and Chocolate cardstock from Papertrey Ink was used as well as their Dark Chocolate ink. I added some Rafia and a button from my stash. The circles were cut with Nestabilities dies and the scalloped edge on the roof was from a Stampin Up punch.
Hope I did Nicole's template justice. I thought it came out pretty cute. Let me know what you think.
