GET CHARMED



this week we have to use charms on our projects.
 and of course, my project is a card--wink.


Birdhouse
7" tall x 4-3/8" wide
i couldn't capture the colors very well on some photos :(
i used cindy loo for the birdhouse: image# 40 and i used all its layers. the size is 4.75 inch tall.

 it is hard to see but there is a butterfly charm by the spanish moss.

i paper pierced around the birdhouse and stickles was added to the heart and to the yellow ornament below.

the birds were punched from a fiskars punch--- three times on different papers--- and layered with adhesive foam for dimension.

the "grass" was done with another fiskars punch and embossed with a new tim holtz sizzix embossing folder called "cracked" using my cuttlebug.

the pretty patterned paper is from k&co. i also used kraft cardstock for the card base and american crafts on the solid colors.

come and play with us this week and  
"get charmed" 
at the cuttlebug spot. have some fun with us. it is nice to participate in challenges plus you never know if you will win some candy. ;)

--------
remember, this friday we will have our monthly 
and i have some candy for a lucky participant.
--------

love you all
