Home Sweet Home (Part II)

While working with the new Victorian Homes my eye spied the cutest little birdhouse hidden in one of the images…..

These little dormer windows seen in this card here were fastened to florist wire for a row of cheerful color.

The mesh background stamped in Mango Madness added a bit of sunny reflection and the grass was leftover from the projects I made here.  I always keep little stamped bits and pieces in a small tin.  What happens to be a leftover at one time becomes just the right embellishment for a card at another time. 

For accents, the windows were adorned with Glossy Accents and a small flower brad was placed in the upper right corner.  I trimmed the arms off of the brad with wire cutters and attached the “head” with dimensional foam.  I purposely attached it “kittywampus” for added dimension and whimsy.

Sharing a smile with all of you,
