Easter/Spring Extravaganza Contest

Happy Monday!

Just under the wire...I have a couple projects for the Magnolia-licious Easter/Spring Extravaganza Contest.

My first project is for #3 - Anything but a card. I have wanted to make a birdhouse for a while, and this was the perfect inspiration.

 Stamps: Tilda and Her BunnyTilda With Curls, Tilda's Birds, Big Snail   
Paint/Ink: Benjamin Moore Sampler (green and green mixed with black for accent), Memento, Copics
Paper: Copics X-Press It, SU! paper
Accessories: Flowers, Stickles, Fleur De Lis Pendant,  MS Fence Punch, lace, pearls, Spare Parts, Scallop punch

Here is a variety of pictures of various angles of the birdhouse.

Just for fun, I also entered this in the Our Creative Corner Challenge.

Wish me luck! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
